After retiring from the military, Nate Taylor was encouraged to run for congress for The State of Tennessee. During his first term in office, the nation's Capital would come under siege by followers of a renegade brigadier general. The siege on the Capitol was a feint to misdirect the administration's resources. The general's aim was to gain access to an ultra-secret intelligence-gathering agency known as ATLAS. This agency resided in the subterranean levels of the former Central Heating Plant, along the banks of the Potomac River that once served the government buildings on Capitol Hill.
