Young Nate Starbuck, the son of a famous Boston abolitionist preacher, flees the North after helping a femme fatale to steal money she claimed was hers. When Richmond landowner Washington Faulconer snatches him from the grip of a Yankee-hating mob, Nate is both grateful to and awed by his idealistic rescuer.

As they come together to march into battle, the men of Faulconer's Legion are prepared to start a war, but they aren't ready for how they—and the nation—will be forever changed by the oaths they have sworn for their beloved South.
