It would be what material and size to make the wheels, not
necessarily the history per se.
Note: It always amazed me that the native Americans never invented
the (transportation) wheel; if only they had the USENET, they'd have
that, and steel, and gunpowder, and ...
This is OT, but it always amazed me that the American natives
didn't invent the (transportation) wheel. Seems so logical.
If they had better communication, e.g., the USENET, they'd
have the wheel, and a whole lot more.
The only thing they wouldn't have are all the diseases that
the white man traded with them.
The USENET is so much more hygienic than actual contact!
Indeed. Syphilis went from the Caribbean to the Old World,
while Gonorrhea followed suit in the reverse direction.
The Mexican natives should have learned, from the lessons
of the battle of Crecy, that you need to shoot the horses
first (the big llamas), and then stay away from the sharp
swords and simply use arrows to pierce the armor, or, at
least use their superior numbers to deprive the Spanish
of their supplies. Had they done *that*, they might have
still retained control of America. If they had had the USENET,
they could have asked me and I would have told them that.

Yet, the numbers were so astonishingly lopsided, 200 Spaniards
to 4,000 natives at a time, that the natives had only to
learn, and they wouldn't have been defeated.
Point is that applies to the USENET, where we learn from
everyone else, or, as the somewhat mythical Sun Tzu would say,
know your backyard, and know yourself, and in a hundred
skirmishes with brush and poison oak, you will prevail.
