Why did British Columbia not join Canada? Nik42 21:45, 31 Jan 2005 (PST)

Never mind, I just read the War of 1862 article. Any movements by the Americans to annex Canada? Nik42 21:54, 31 Jan 2005 (PST)

In the War of 1812 (before POD) there surely were. I guess in the War of 1862 there was also annexation feelings, but it was clearer then that Canadians didn't want to be US citizens, neither the US citizens wanted Canadians to be US citizens. The US government then agreed on a compromise: Canada would be independent of the USA but also independent of the UK. By 1862 Canada was prety much autonomous herself, so the UK did not see much problem with that. --Chlewey 06:03, 1 Feb 2005 (PST)
