It was the year 1863, and the Union was at war, the line drawn. In the North, it was known as the War to save the Union, and in the South, it was the War of Northern Aggression. The great hope and ideals which were consecrated in blood and sacrifice during the American Revolution had been splintered and disfigured. The earlier decades were filled with upheaval and contention, both financially and morally. Taxes, tariffs and trade disputes were among the main subjects of dissent between Northern and Southern states, specifically Industry and Agriculture.

These contentions were only symptoms of the true sickness of America, caused by the subtle demise of the Statesman, which ushered in the birth of the Politician. Like a cancer these greedy men infected the land and its inhabitants. The result was continuous death and decimation of the common folk, by the common folk.

C J Heigelmann

C.J. Heigelmann was born in Hartford, CT in the summer of 1969. He enjoyed an early childhood typical of any other youth living in a region steeped with the traditions and history of New England during the 1970’s. At age 12, he moved to Los Angeles and settled in Compton, California. As a young teenager, he traversed one of the most violent cities in America during the rise and height of gang warfare, that unfortunately became known as one of the most notorious murder capitals in the world. In 1988, at age 18 he faced a cross-road in his life and decided to enlist in the United States Air Force, where he served in the 1st Gulf War as well as other deployments. During one such deployment he witnessed first-hand and survived the Mt. Pinatubo Volcanic eruption and its aftermath, which destroyed all major U.S. military installations in the vicinity, and devastated the Island of Luzon.
