I guess it's impossible to say, but then I'd think the following:

- No immediate rise of Napoleon

- The British would have seized Louisiana (not the modern state but the French territory which was more or less a third of the current USA)

- No war of 1812

- No civil war, as the British would have abolished slavery the same time as they did in the Caribbean

- The USA today would probably be similar to Canada, at least politically.

Events would have probably gone the way they did with Australia or Canada, alternatively the USA would have declared independence in the 1800's given that it overtook our own population around that time. North America would probably be unified and Mexico more powerful than today but with our attitude post WW2 we'd have still likely granted them independence if they weren't already.

Given our expansionist and religious attitudes at the time, we'd have been at war with Catholic Mexico and probably more of south America and the Caribbean.

The UK abolished slavery in the UK not in the colonies(not immediately at least).

There would definitely have been a second war for independence, I don't know under what circumstances as that would be speculating. But just look at the south of the USA, their economy relied on slavery, if it was abolished by the British they would have rebelled and sought independence.

There would be no second world war
