Confederate forces first invaded Mexico, then continued south and conquered the whole of South America Jules Verne, in his 1895 novel "Propeller Island", envisioned the (undivided) United States conquering and annexing the whole of South America before moving west to Pacific islands such as Hawaii. The Confederacy thrived as cities like Washington-Baltimore (merged from Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and Alexandria (Alexandria, Virginia)) and Leesburg (formerly Mexico City) became renowned international centers of culture and learning. The Confederacy stood as one of the world's two superpowers following the German Union's victory in the Emperors' War, fought in Europe from 1914 to 1916. The German Union swiftly advanced across most of Europe from the Baltic Sea to the Balkans and formed an alliance with a rejuvenated Spanish Empire. To maintain the balance of power (Balance of power in international relations), the Confederacy purchased Alaska from Russia and allied with the British Empire. Tensions grew between the two nations up until the 1950s, and people around the world lived under constant threat of impending war, with the defenseless United States certain to be the battleground.

Manhattan

with a thesis on John Ruskin and the British painter J. M. W. Turner. From Columbia, he went to Paris to continue his studies, and lived in the city between 1947 and 1951, earning a Doctorat de l’Université de Paris, with a “mention très honorable.” His two theses were on the city as a symbol in modern poetry and on the nature of Gothic. Ishmael provides little about his personal background before his decision at the beginning of the novel to journey to Nantucket (Nantucket, Massachusetts), Massachusetts to enlist as a sailor on a whaler. There is evidence in the text to suggest that he was formerly a school-teacher who left that life of theory to pursue the more practical life at sea. At the beginning of the novel, he is an experienced seaman who has not previously served on a whaler but in the merchant marine service (an experience that is ridiculed by the owners of the ''Pequod'' when he approaches them to sign on). He begins the novel in the first chapter wandering through Manhattan in the dreariness of November with dark thoughts suggesting nearly suicidal (suicide) tendencies: pausing before coffin houses and following funerals. His primary reason for going to sea, he suggests, is to break out of this depressive cycle and obsession with death. Ishmael tends to brood and think his way through things, going so far as to describe himself as a philosopher in ''The Mast-Head''. Ishmael, while seemingly rejecting the arts, does confess that he is—or at least was at one point—a poet. The house used in the film is located near the famous Sugar Hill (Sugar Hill, Manhattan) in the Hamilton Heights section of Harlem in Manhattan, New York City. The address is 336 Convent Avenue.
