It is a period of civil war [1861-1865]

During the battle, rebel spies managed


to steal secret battle plans for the Union’s ultimate

enough power to destroy an entire city.


Pursued by the Union’s sinister agent Rhett Butler,


Scarlet O’Hara races home in her carriage, custodian


of the stolen plans that can save her people and bring


independence to the Confederacy…
