Follows the campaign from Richmond to Petersburg, then to battles at Lynchburg and General Jubal Early's fight down the Shenandoah Valley - defeating two Union Armies in the process. The Confederates crossing the Potomac River into Maryland, and the ransoming of Frederick and Hagerstown; The pivotal Battle of Monocacy (July 9, 1864), and the desperate defense by Union General Lew Wallace. Finally, the Confederates reaching the gates of Washington, and missing their chance to capture the Union Capitol by minutes.
