An 1863 Chickamauga Battlefield event scars a series of Weston family men in ways none of them understand. Finally, Rob, five generations removed from the Civil War, is forced to confront the event’s role in his life. But first the family grapples with layers of deceit, the South’s racial divide, a wildly eccentric father obsessed with the war and the potent influence of a long-dead ancestor.
