Time Travel Adventures of the 1800 Club, Book I
Chapter I The President Lincoln Mission
A probe sent back to record the Gettysburg Address makes a startling discovery: President Lincoln never makes it! The great man came down with a deep depression and could not leave his room. The 1800 club must send someone back in time to correct this problem, and club member William Scott is selected. He is let in on the club’s secret; its ability to time travel and after completing the mission is offered the job of President of the 1800 Club. The mission taught him that going back in time is not always a lark as the people of the past had the same likes and dislikes as us and more than one could be dangerous as he found out himself.
Chapter II The Teddy Roosevelt Mission
What if the charge up San Juan Hill didn’t take place in the Spanish/American War? What if Teddy Roosevelt was not the swash-buckling man the world of today knows and never ran for president? History would take a different course and the world would be a different place. For one, more men would die in the Spanish/American War because he prolonged the conflict by not charging the hill. The dead men’s lives get cut short and they have no children to carry their names. Artists, teachers, doctors and ordinary family men that would have been in their lineage are never to be. Once again a club member must go back in time and fix the glitch. Finding out that one of Roosevelt’s closest friends and advisors was Bat Masterson, our time traveling club member must first make sure that they meet. This entails that he must travel to the Wild West.
