Chaplain for the 14th Louisiana, James Sheenan accompanies his brigade through almost all its battles including Early's field trip to Washington. After Cedar Creek, he crosses the Union line to administer to Confederate sick and wounded who are behind the lines. He secures a pass but later the pass isn't honored and he's thrown into prison near Baltimore. He petitions for his release and finally reaches Secretary Stanton who defers to Sheridan. In his audience with Sheridan, Sheridan almost reneges and queries him about another Chaplain who discredited himself.

It's a story of courage and determination of how one man with little more than his faith survived that terrible war we study so fondly.
