I notice Matthew Perry's quite popular. Has anyone considered that if Perry hadn't made his expedition, the whole Pacific Theatre of WW2 might never have happened?

It's very hard to predict alternate history by the century, but by that same token, Asia very well might have stayed a backwater and Japan never developed into a global power.

The 12th Ballot has ended (results are below). 

No one is inducted, but Douglass and Anthony got within a vote. 

**New Rule: As per JNewt's suggestion. Anyone on the 10th ballot will move to the Veteran's Ballot if they receive 50% support on ballot 10. Also, I don't think most people noticed that they were supposed to vote for or against Baron von Steuben on the Veterans Ballot. I'm just going to do the Veteran ballots at the very end. I'll give Steuben another chance when I do this**
