From the Publisher
Annotation Set in Civil War America, this novel follows the fortunes of a cast of young characters as the war makes an inevitable impact on their lives. Abolitionist Lon Price is a detective with the new firm known as Pinkerton's. Margaret Miller is a bubble-headed Southern belle. Rose Greenhow is a beautiful Confederate spy. Hanna Siegel is a young woman who wishes she could prove herself in battle. And Captain Frederick Dasher, serving in the First Virginia Cavalry under General Jeb Stuart, isn't sure why he's there. Veteran historical novelist John Jakes brings them all together in Washington D.C. in a tale that culminates with Lincoln's assassination there in 1865, just after the end of the war.
