This 9-week serial is the story of Eddie Barnes, a 15-year-old boy in New York City who
is bored by history. His teacher is hard on him, he thinks, and often makes him redo his
research papers. One day she gives him a subway token to use on the way home from school.
He does and when he comes up from the subway, he discovers that he has somehow traveled
through time and Franklin Roosevelt has just been elected President! Eddie soon meets Glory,
a young woman in some trouble. In helping her, Eddie learns that history is more than just facts,
it�s about people and their lives.
