Synopsis: After three years of war, good friends Matt Owens and Henry Acaley are captured by the Confederates at Plymouth, North Carolina, and bound over into the infamous hell hole of Andersonville Prison in Andersonville, Georgia. It is the pivotal point in a story that traces their lives back to a small western Pennsylvania town where they grew up together, where they lived and laughed-and where they enlisted, naive to the horrors of war, as proud volunteers in the fight against the rebellion. Matt has left behind Abby, his betrothed, who struggles daily against the possibility that the true love of her life may never return to her. Amid the chaos of war and the aftermath of Andersonville, our heroes' survival bears witness to the extremes of the human experience; the nature of fear, courage, and love; and the profound depths of man's inhumanity to man.
