London, 1870. The South won the War but cannot win the peace. Ambassador Robert E. Lee attempts to gain British support, but Britain refuses to treat with slavers. A shadowy official gives Lee one last chance. Duty to country demands Lee defend slavery; duty to self demands he forsake it. Which the higher duty? The answer lies somewhere East of Appomattox.
