Garner [Quantum 6]
In Reality Garner, President-Elect Franklin Roosevelt was assassinated in 1933 by Giuseppe Zangara, just like in the highly dangerous Reich-5 timeline. But unlike on Reich-5, Vice-President Elect John Nance Garner then went on to have two reasonably effective terms before handing over the Presidency to Republican Wendell Willkie in 1940. It’s now 1942, and Willkie is busy fighting World War II. The war is going roughly the same as it did on Homeline, and there’s no real indication that the Allies are going to lose the war against the Axis.
So it’s amazing how flat-out nasty the out-time interference is getting.
