Macktown was founded in 1805 and sat just inside the eastern border of Maryland. It was a mid-size city with a smoke-stained skyline from generations of blue collar production. During the early 1960's, however, Macktown had gotten misplaced in the natural chain of social progression. Its voice faded from public ears and its people turned into shadows; drifting into a somewhat gone but not forgotten photo album. But from the void of nonexistence became a culture forced to carry on and operate on its own; who developed laws, principles and a standard of pride that empowered them to rise far above and beyond the society that left them behind.
