While decisions made by Abraham Lincoln, Robert E. Lee, and General Sherman affected the course of history, ordinary Americans carried out those orders, and often made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. This show highlights smaller stories of some of the soldiers caught up in it, including Zak, a runaway slave who demands the right to fight his own fight; Will, his former best friend and master; Johnny, an Irish immigrant who volunteers to defend his new home; and Jackie, a girl who becomes a drummer boy.
