Rittenhouse in the Timeless Universe
In 1778, Rittenhouse founded an organization that sought to gain political control of America from the shadows.
Rittenhouse was shot by Garcia Flynn who went back in time to September 14, 1780 in order to prevent Rittenhouse from ever being formed, but it seemed that Rittenhouse lived even without their original founder. ("The Capture of Benedict Arnold")
