in 1891, a skirmish between a poorly-prepared Nebraskan militia unit and a trigger-happy group of Kansas farmers ends badly for the Nebraskans. They are forced to retreat when a much larger body of Kansas volunteers moves up to reinforce the farmers. They send a report off to General Anthony Franklin in Missouri, who is coordinating the attack on Kansas. He is highly displeased with the militia's effectiveness, and sends Major Mark Wainwright to Nebraska to take command of the siege there. Wainwright is happy just to get away from Franklin, whom he has grown to despise heartily.

in 1999, King Arthur II of Great Britain places his security chief, Sir Lance du Lac, at the head of the Royal Military, and du Lac hastily mobilizes defenses in the British Isles just in time to beat back the Central European Imperial troops crossing the English Channel. The Royal Air Force, recently upgraded by technology Prime Minister Merl Myrddin had bargained mightily for, fights off the CEE's war planes as they attempt to make bombing runs against the English and Welsh countryside. Commonwealth troops, on the move to Europe from around the world to aid the Mother Country in its struggle, meet opposition from the CE Imperial Navy, almost as if the CEE had known they were coming. Prime Minister Myrddin begins tapping the resources he still has as a former Illuminati to find where his security leaks are coming from.

In 1983 just before one o'clock the phone rang in the house of Bill Smith. As the Investigator in Charge of a National Transportation Safety Board Go-Team, he was informed of a collision between a DC-10 and a 747 over Oakland, California. There were no survivors. Paradoxically, nobody had died and this was one of the many reasons why this airline disaster threatened an end to the world as we know it.

In 1813 during the War of 1812 United States troops captured the capital of Ontario, York (present day Toronto, State of Ontario). The long retreat from North America was almost over for Britain. The unnecessary war enabled the United States to assimilate Canadian territory at a point when barriers to cross-border union were not yet insurmountable.

In 1983 at a press conference on this day historians Hugh Trevor-Roper declared the diaries of Martin Bormann, known as the  Bormann Diaries  to be forgeries. The Journalist Gerd Heidemann was a liar, and Heidemann claims to have received the diaries from East Germany, smuggled out by a Dr. Fischer were falsehoods. .. Bormann
.. Whilst Trevor-Roper understood his rapid retraction of his authentication process would of course damage his credibility, this time he was sure. And he would explain in detail articles to be published in Die Zeitung (The Times) newspaper over the next three days.

In 1992 having briefly watched the videotaped beating of black motorist Rodney King by four police officers, George Bush fully understood the profound consequences for his continuance in office. Bush could not allow this episode to derail his thirty year program to rebuild American power using extraterrestrial technology ..

A number of white jurists would be informed of the guidelines ahead of their upcoming decision. Regrettably, this was not 1963, he could not assassinate the principals to get the right verdict. He had changed with the times, very much so.

In 1911 following the resignation and death of William P. Frye, a compromise was reached to rotate the office of President pro tempore of the United States Senate. The president pro tempore of the United States Senate is the second-highest-ranking official of the Senate and the highest-ranking senator. The Vice President .. William Frye

.. of the United States is the President of the Senate ex officio, and thus is the highest-ranking member of the Senate; during his absence, the President pro tempore presides over the Senate. The role was envisaged briefly when both President Abraham Lincoln and Vice President Andrew Johnson were assassinated on the same day by the Lincoln Conspiracy in 1865. However the function envisaged by the role was not actually required until 1963 when both President Kennedy and Vice President Lyndon Baines Johnson were shot at Dallas by a Sicilian assassination team acting on the orders of the mob.
