The Confederacy Versus Chaos 1899
May 1899, little Rock Arkansas
A strange kidnapping has occurred. The vice governor of Arkansas, Arnold Forrest, was out riding when he was abducted near Veracity Swamp. Witnesses included the local sheriff, an engineer and a poet.
What they claimed initially caused disbelief and ridicule. A green 'portal' of glowing light had appeared and some 'beast men' had emerged from it. The witnesses say they emerged as Forest cantered past. They exhibited great physical strength and athletic ability as they leapt on to the rider and dragged him into the portal.
At first no further sign of the portal could be found but it reappeared a day later. Governor, Arnold Vendt then ordered the local National Guard to surround the site and to train Colt machine guns on the 'gate', Not only had the vice governor vanished but he was also the son of national hero, Bedford Forest and the brother of the president, Leeroy Forest.
The president, although disbelieving at first personally visited the site and heard the witnesses. Within to days a small army had been assembled and after scouts had entered and reemerged to tell of an eerie land, it too began to enter. At first there was a significant delay between when the first infantry unit could penetrate the light and when the next units could enter. The light had assumed a thick fog like appearance and the consistency of watery lime jelly.
