Battle of Boise
Wright gets a mobilization call from Staff Sergeant Meyers and sent to Boise to help maintain the peace between protestors and proponents of the Federal ID Card Act. Danny is hit by a rock and accidentally discharges his weapon, causing other Guardsmen to open fire, killing several protestors. Meyers and Kemp get into an argument about who fired the first shot, until Danny confesses that he fired the first shot. The Guard soldiers are visited by General McNabb and Governor Montaine. When President Rodriguez demands that Gov. Montaine turn over the names of the soldiers involved and begin enforcing the new federal ID-card law, a standoff ensues. The conservative governor vows to resist a federal government grown too big and will nullify the new law. Since nullification means insurrection according to Article VI, Clause 2 of the Constitution, federal troops are called in, and the crisis escalates.
