 Synopsis

In the midst of a prolonged and deadly American Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln
appoints a very different kind of general, Ulysses S. Grant, Chief of Union Forces.

Grant acts decisively. He brings total war to the pristine Shenandoah Valley, breadbasket of the South.

The superintendent of the Virginia Military Institute volunteers to send the Corps of Cadets to protect the valley.

274 young cadets march northward toward the strategic valley choke-point of New Market.

On the day of battle, Confederate General John C. Breckenridge, former Vice President of the United States, and
commander of southern forces in Valley, is faced with a horrible decision. When Southern forces are jeopardized,
he orders the young cadets into battle.
