Cody Franklin, better known as Alternate History Hub is an Male American YouTuber who goes over different alternate histories, such as: "What if the South won the war of Northern Aggression", "What if Germany won WW2", and other alternate history topics.


This entire channel is dedicated to the "What If?" of history. Using knowledge of geography, population, and other historical facts we can see what could have happened if events changed. Learn about how the world would be different if the Axis won World War II, if America lost the Revolution, or even discover entire alternate countries. Learn controversial topics such as if Christianity never existed and many other subjects.


Cody joined on Dec 25, 2012, and has over 1 million subscribers and almost 56 million views as of october 1,2017 His first videos were "What if the Axis won WW2?" and "What if the Roman Empire never fell?" Since then he has been very successful, but then like many other YouTubers like I Hate Everything been experiencing problems with YouTube during 2015 to early 2016: "YouTube's Dark Age". Cody's problem was that he wasn't receiving money, which lead to a major delay with his "What if Germany won World War II? Part 4." Cody does contests, so other people could do their own projects and show Cody. </p>

Around september,29,2017 Cody partnered with  StepBackHistory and EmperorTigerstart to start the podcast livestreams called So that happaned. It currently has 2 live streams by October,1,2017.


On July 29, 2015, Cody made a new channel called GeographyHub (later changed to KnowledgeHub), where he mainly talks about geography; thus Cody's fans soon subscribed to his second channel. GeographyHub is also like a mini channel to AlternateHistoryHub, but Cody spends more time on his own channel than KnowledgeHub (the mini-channel). On July 19, 2016 he changed the name of the channel to KnowledgeHub, the videos on this channel now feature videos relating to multiple different subjects, such as "Tanks of World War II" and "What was the Star Wars program?" Recently Cody's brother Tyler has taken over most of the videos on KnowledgeHub, allowing Cody to focus on AlternateHistoryHub.
