Our story takes place in Two Rivers at their city-wide 4th of July celebration. They’ve gathered to celebrate Independence Day as well as the acquisition of Hamilton Industries by a hospital group. Hamilton Industries has been the reason for prosperity in Calumet, Kewaunee, and Manitowoc counties with its production of washers and driers, and before that, wood type. Hamilton Industries is switching to producing hospital furniture and medical fumes in hopes of continuing its prosperity in the future. The celebration is the perfect time to introduce the esteemed George Hamilton, the new hospital group CEO. He has a knack for only speaking in rhymes, and let’s just say he has a few tricks up his sleeve. Could Hamilton be the hero of the city’s future, or will he fail before their eyes? Hamilton has an idea to make both him and the Mayor rich – all the Mayor has to do is turn a blind eye as he does a little clandestine chemistry at the Hamilton Ball that evening. A shipment of a product not-yet-FDA-approved with the promise of curing everything from the common cold, to anxiety and glaucoma is headed their way. Will Hamilton take the city higher and higher, or just crash and burn? You’ll have to see for yourself!
