in 1891, President Benjamin Harrison holds his first meeting about “Sockless” Simpson's Kansas rebellion. The already-unpopular Harrison is told by his cabinet that Congress is clamoring for him to retake Kansas or face impeachment. Because of the seeming illegitimacy of his campaign's victory in 1888, President Harrison has been abandoned even by his fellow Republicans, and is facing the twilight of his life in public. He tells his cabinet, “My personal fortunes do not matter, gentlemen. What matters is the Union that I fought a war to preserve. Kansas will be American again.”

in 1998, French union organizer Lance du Lac joins the ranks of Arthur Pendrake in Great Britain. The flamboyant Frenchman attracts the attention of Pendrake himself, who likes du Lac's organizational skills and is impressed with his character. For his part, du Lac is practically overcome with hero worship for Pendrake, and is the first to swear his fealty to King Arthur. Pendrake put du Lac in charge of security for his burgeoning followers, and the Frenchman teaches a cadre of newly-knighted men the techniques he had used successfully in his homeland to build unions against rather stiff opposition. Before long, Arthur comes to rely on du Lac's advice even more than he does on Merl's – just as the Illuminati planned.
