@CGCampbell: He was better noted for his Naziism than his professionalism. And Nazi generals such as Jodl and Keitel. "Lakeitel" is a play on the latter's name, because "Lakei" means "lackey" in German. And some would say that Jodl "yodeled" the party line. Basically anyone that was sentenced to death, or would have been, at Nuremberg. I would consider Doenitz and Speer "borderline" cases; highly professional, but sentenced to "hard time" at Nuremberg.

comment Did the Missouri Compromise Signify the Era of Good Feelings?
@PieterGeerkens: Actually, it answers the original question, which read in part: [Does] "the Missouri Compromise signifies peace, because it was eventually settled, or does it signify a divide in the country because now the north and south are evenly matched?" I "took out" too much of the question in fixing it.

@DeerHunter: No problem. I basically edited my question to fit your answer.

To the OP: I improved your question by adding links, and tying it to a hypothesis held by a historical authority.

comment Why did Sweden and Norway become the vassals of Denmark?
@exebook: I would say it was about "random" dynastic factors. E.g. if Margrethe had married Albrecht, instead, it could have played out differently. If you play this out again, it could have gone a different way. Denmark, being in warmer climate, had somewhat more population than Norway, and maybe Sweden, but I don't consider that the decisive factor.

Great comment about "decision space." Some frightening possibilities: 1) Germany gets all (or most) of the "Med." 2a) Germany gets European Russia or 2b) After Germany gets the Med and consolidates the non-Russian Soviet Union, "Russia" is forced to make peace. 3) Germany heads for Iran and India, and a link-up with the Japanese, forcing "free China" to surrender. Give the Anglo-Americans victories at "Torch" and in the battle of the Atlantic, and you have North America, South America, the UK, Africa, and Australia-New Zealand alone against the Axis.,
