The Civil War explodes, air thick with musket fire, soil drenched with the blood of kinsmen, bodies piling up like cords of wood. In the madness and fury, a small group of Union soldiers fall into the hands of the Confederate army. Overnight, they find themselves herded aboard a prison train bound for the deepest regions of the South, to a slice of Hell carved out of the Georgia clay known as Andersonville Prison.
