September 11th, 2001: The largest terrorist attack in the History of the United States is conducted, as planes crash into the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Virginia. On one flight, the passengers try to seize control of the plane to avoid yet another attack, but they fail. The fourth plane crashes into the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., leveling it.
When President George W. Bush heard the news, he was reading a story to an elementary school class in Sarasota, Florida. When he was informed of the tragedy, he was shocked - so shocked he had a heart attack, and died on the spot.
Upon Bush's death, Vice President Dick Cheney rose to the office of President. In the wake of one of the greatest tragedies the nation had ever known, the new President prepared for his Baptism of Fire, vowing revenge on the perpetrators.
