Over 140 years later, Ben Gates is telling his ancestor's story at a Civilian Heroes conference. Black market dealer [[Mitchell Wilkinson]], a Virginia Military Institute graduate, shows one of the 18 missing pages of John Wilkes Booth's diary, with Thomas Gates' name on it, convincing everyone that Thomas was not only a conspirator, but the grand architect of the Lincoln assassination, which tarnishes the [[Gates Family]]'s reputation and Ben is disgraced.
