Jack and Kate Washington are twins born after 13 1/2 months, possessing extraordinary intelligence, analytical and physical ability. At 25, leading lives of brilliance and as consultants to Congress, they grow frustrated with Politics. To right the wrongs in America, they invent a time machine and along with three others, attempt to travel to 1992. Jack miss-keys however, and they end up in 1492 instead, stuck until Jack can develop adequate power. To acquire resources, they meet Columbus and sail back to Europe. They start their mission of correcting the major wrongs of American evolution, firstly, annihilation of the Natives. They return to the Potomac, and now, with weaker power cells permitting leaps only in segments, they continue to 1584. They meet the first arriving Englishmen and enforce humane assimilation and prevent slavery. Next they leap to 1787, where along with George Washington, guide the Constitutional Convention. As they leap back to present day, traveling companion, Nick Monroe, remains behind. He establishes a Foundation with them as beneficiaries and they return to extreme wealth in present day. They begin lives of philanthropy and continue political careers, with the advantage of an operable time machine.
