As the Civil War unfolds, one family prepares to embark on a harrowing journey. Based on a true story, Thomas Tiernan weaves together the life of Mrs. Lydia Bixby and her sons, chronicling the lives of a family under the siege of war.

This absorbing tale, based on the commonly believed genesis of the actual poem, will draw you into the tragic world of a family destined for oblivion.
