    I’d shoot woodrow wilson before he came into power.

    I would stop Hitler and Stalin from obtaining power and encourage WWI-allied nations to stop the bitterness of defeat syndrome of the German people – which allowed a person like Hitler to come to power.

      I second this. European history would have been soooooo much different.

    Hard choice for me, as there are two I’d desparately like to change. For me personally, it would be the early death of Mozart. I’d prefer he’d lived another 35 years. Gad what we lost the day he died!!! But the other is to wish the opposite: an earlier death on someone else – Hitler. I so wish the 1st assassination attempt, or at least any before the war, had succeeded! How many millions of lives would have been affected for the better!

    I would make it to where Stonewall Jackson survived his wounds and phenomia. I believe that if he had lived, the South would have had a greater chance of winning the War.

    Gavrilo Princip killing Archduke Franz Ferdinand at Sarajevo 1914. No assassination then possibly no Great War and therefore no WWII. No Nazism and no mass slaughter on the scale that the 20th century has witnessed.

    FDR not be elected in 1932. He made the Depression worse. He then dragged the US into WWII in order to get the US economy going again. He was a Socialist and his administration was rancid with communists!

    I would have prevented John Wilkes Booth from assassinating President Lincoln. Had this event not happened, I believe WW I would surely have been prevented simply by the power the United States would have brought to the table by the threat of intervention. Events between 1865 and 1914 worldwide at least certainly in Europe would have been altered. Even WW II may have been influenced. The treatment of the Native American’s surely. There may have still have been emigrants passing thru their lands, but not the mass numbers after the harsh treatment of the southerners during the Johnston administration, in retribution for Lincoln’s murder.
    #2 Pearl Harbor
    #3 9/11
    #4 The Massacre at Sand Creek.
    #5 The destruction of Black Kettle’s village at the Washita.

    I would have Vercingetorix defeat Julius Caesar at the Battle of Alesia.
