Alternate History

I got to thinking about topics for my blog day and this popped up. Alternate History. What if Napoleon had won and remained Emperor of France instead of being exiled? What if the South had won the civil war? What if is the beginning of nearly every story, kind of "let's pretend" for grown ups. So what do you think? Can alternative history works be considered Historicals? There's a lot of historical research involved, you have to know the era you're altering pretty well.
