Westminster Hall, February 13th, 1788. The House of Commons, The House of Lords, Members of the Royal Family, Foreign Dignitaries, historians, and socialites are packed into the Palace of Westminster but they aren't here for a monumental vote, or a declaration of war, or even a coronation. They're here for an impeachment trial! The defendant is Warren Hastings who until recently was the East India companies top man in Bengal who is accused of a litany of crimes.

How will the British Government's ruling in this trial change the course of history?
