The year is 1775. In Europe, an unseen Master peers into a darkened mirror for the image of the man whose destiny it is to wear the victor's crown. Across the sea, in a land named for a virgin queen, a tall, commanding colonel named George Washington is thrown from his horse and has a dream that will haunt him for the rest of his life. Not long after, a reluctant Washington is unanimously elected Commander in Chief of the fledgling country's Continental Army, setting in motion a momentous series of events governed by a secret cabal of conspirators with agents on both sides of the Atlantic. As rebellion grows imminent and colonists flock to take up arms for liberty, they hardly suspect they are part of a greater plan.
