According to the book description of Civil War II, “Madman or Messiah? Will John Butler “Bull” Jackson and The United States People’s Constitutional Militia free the nation from a corrupt and immoral government, or start a chaotic civil war? By coercion and bribery of high-ranking government and military officials, the organization infiltrates thousands of recently discharged veterans, sympathetic to the cause, back into strategic military positions. The plan: isolate the nation’s Capitol under the guise of martial law, then bring down the President’s administration. Right from the outset, things don’t go as planned. Six political assassinations, several violent bombings, and the escape of two petty convicts from an Arkansas prison unwittingly cause a chain of events that disrupts Bull Jackson’s takeover timetable. Secret Service Agents MacAllister Fox and Roger Cassidy, along with Sheriff Sam Walker of Johnson County, Arkansas, try to track down the elusive Bull Jackson and his followers, but they always seem to remain a step behind.”
