Cousins Walt and Nate McGregor, and Sunday, the former slave on Nate’s father’s plantation, have survived the carnage of the Battle of Shiloh. But the American Civil War rages on, and the three young men find themselves reunited at the notorious Libby prison in Virginia. Within its walls, Nate is a guard, Sunday is a slave, and Walt is a prisoner. Their grim reunion highlights the complexity of a war that has torn a nation apart. Can these three battle-scarred soldiers hope for anything more than survival?
