The Family Duran
“1910 – before the majority of homes had electricity, telephones, and indoor plumbing. For around $500 Sears and Roebuck would send out kits to build a home, and they contained everything needed, from plans and lumber to the last nail. America was trying to become a civilized nation but still burst out with gun battles, the lynching of horse thieves, recollection of the Alamo, and land wars. Automobiles only frequently visited the roads, and families provided their own entertainment with books, magazines, or music from anyone who could play. Back in those days friendships were sealed with blood, and love grew out of the necessity to survive. “ See link for plot.

Jeremiah urges his followers to create a "New America" in the Dakotas, where believers will implement God's revised plan for mankind.”

With financing from abroad, Jeremiah's mercenary army seizes a fleet of stealth bombers and occupies a nuclear power plant near Washington, D.C. Jeremiah's demand that the federal government recognize New American as an independent state creates a military and constitutional crisis. “
