BEHIND CONFEDERATE LINES!
Young Josiah Waymeier, a private in the 2nd Ohio Volunteer Infantry, has been chosen to be part of a daring and dangerous plan. A select group of Union soldiers will attempt to steal the General behind enemy lines and drive the engine straight to safety in Union territory, burning Confederate bridges as they go. Meanwhile, Josiah’s mother has devised a bold plan of her own. She intends to steal a shipment of gold bullion from the Confederacy and take it to a rendezvous with the General, to contribute the money to the Union cause. When the theft of the engine unleashes a desperate pursuit through Confederate territory, both mother and son will ﬁnd themselves racing not only to perform their missions, but for their very lives!
