Ides of March (Eagle's Complete Mission) 15...
On the 15th of March 1783, George Washington had to face a coup among his officers, unhappy at not being paid for almost a year. Eagle's mission is to make sure history unfolds as it did. However, as usual with a Time Patrol Mission, nothing is quite as it seems.
There once was a place called Atlantis. 10,000 years ago, it was attacked by a force known only as the Shadow, on the same day over the course of six years. The last attack led to Atlantis being obliterated to the point where it is just a legend.
There are many Earth timelines. The Shadow comes from one of those timelines. It is attacking our timeline by punching bubbles into our past that can last no more than 24 hours. In each bubble, the Shadow is trying to change our history and cause a time ripple.
By itself, a time ripple can be dealt with, corrected, absorbed. But a significant time ripple that is unchecked can become a Cascade. And six Cascades combine to form a Time Tsunami.
That would be the end of our timeline. And our existence.
To achieve this goal, the Shadow attacks six points in time simultaneously; the same date, in different years.
The Time Patrol sends an agent back to each of those six dates to keep history the same.
This is one of those dates and one of those missions from Ides of March: Eagle traveling back to Newburgh NY in 1783 A.D. I'll be posting complete missions from all the Time Patrol books from here on out. Each book has six missions that make up the overall events. There's more to the book than just the missions, but by itself you get the gist!
Part I comes on Monday, II on Tuesday, etc, until the mission is complete on Friday!
