Historical Civil War Fiction at its best!
Southerners, sensing danger to existing institutions, law, social order, family, true religion and loss of liberty—liberty meaning being left alone to pursue personal goals, without suffering interference from government or fellow citizens—prepare to fight for their freedom. At the beginning of the Civil War, the Confederate Government is being organized and needs funds to pay for war preparations and other government expenses. As part of a scheme to help fill their coffers, Dirk Howard, an ex-United States Army Officer, is recruited into the Confederate Army and assigned to a secret mission in the North. In his quest for the South’s liberty, he becomes entangled in unimaginable intrigue and espionage.
