As a great soldier, spy, and diplomat, William Henry Lytham had much with which to concern himself while fighting for the Confederacy during the Civil War. Yet it is a young lady in Richmond, Virginia whom William seems most enamored. Upon his reassignment to Europe, where he serves as a Southern diplomat, he is forced to choose between his American love and another woman whom he meets in France. Even so, it is on the battlefields of Virginia where Lytham's true mettle is tested and he is able to reconcile the ambivalence he feels for the Southern cause.
