These four ordinary, but very different, people are: a former Confederate soldier of East Tennessee, a slave trying to establish himself as a free man, a widow balancing her womanhood and poverty, and an easy-living minister whose father's plantation becomes the site of the bloody battle of Brice's Crossroads. The book traces the lives of these individuals as they undergo enormous personal changes.
