Annie Sinclair lives in Virginia during the time of the Civil War.  Control of the land around her home alternates between the Union Army and the Confederate Army.  As she witnesses the war in her own yard, she is horrified at what she sees.  Although she originally believed in the southern cause, she finds herself confused and questions the purpose of the war.  What Annie learns is that no matter where your loyalty lies, no one will ever be the same after the war ends. Come and experience the war the way that Annie sees it.
