At the start of the American
Civil War, there was nothing but glory on the horizon for
the South’s pride and joy—William Henry Lytham.
Forced to choose sides in 1860, William’s commitment
to defend his home is put to the ultimate test as his once
united country is harshly torn asunder.
While revealing his talents as a spy
early in the war, William must also win the heart of Melanie,
a beautiful girl he courts as they stroll the streets of
Richmond. When William is assigned to a diplomatic mission
to Europe, he must choose between his love for her and for
someone he meets in France. But it is on the bloody battlefields
of Virginia that William’s true spirit is tested,
and where his reputation as the Soul of the South is secured.
