Would Unification of Germany happen in the 1820s, would events of both world wars would escalate half a century before? Would Teddy Roosevelt get shot in Detroit?

Would we in 2011 be colonising the solar system and exploring outer space? Or be living in caves hiding against the harsh climate of a nuclear winter?
