Summary

Chapter 15: Two weeks before his inauguration, Windrip appoints Lee Sarason to be both Secretary of State and commander-in-chief of the Minute Men marching club. Windrip offers the position of Secretary of State to Bishop Prang, but Prang declines the offer. After his inauguration, Windrip issues an order stating that the Minute Men will be an armed auxiliary to the United States Army and will only be subject to orders from Windrip and Sarason. Windrip declares martial law and a state of crisis, and then he uses the Minute Men to arrest the majority of Congress and place the members of the Supreme Court under house arrest. Riots break out all over the country, but these riots are suppressed by the Army and the Minute Men. Prang goes to Washington to try to reason with Windrip, but Prang is arrested and never seen again.
