A New Version of History

This challenge has ended!

I just finished watching Inglorious Basterds and thought of a new idea for a challenge. Write a story about a real event in history and have the fictional events or characters alter the course of history.

It doesn’t need to be overly dramatic but it does have to be interesting (obviously).

    WHERE ARE ALL THE SUBMISSIONS? Alternate history is an interesting aspect of science fiction that I enjoy. Anyone here read Temeraire, The Man In The High Castle, or Leviathan (Scott Westerfeld)? Hell, even District 9 could be considered alt-history. I’m going to have to think something up for this one.
