Storyline

Bilko receives a box or artifacts from his Aunt which suggests that his ancestor, Major Joshua Bilko, played a vital role in the US gaining independence. Bilko takes a great deal of pride in knowing that it was a Bilko who served alongside George Washington at this glorious point in American History. He begins to read Major Joshua Bilko's diary and slowly realises that maybe he and Joshua Bilko are not so dissimilar - but not in a good way! Written by Stephen Farnsworth
