Transported to the past through a weather anomaly, retired Brigadier General Daniel Rodin is captured by Confederate soldiers. He is taken to their camp where he meets and is questioned by General Robert E. Lee himself! Despite evidence proving he comes from the future, Lee deems Rodin a prisoner of war and has him placed under guard, but not everyone is happy with a black man being treated as cordially as Rodin has been. And a plot to hang him starts among the soldiers. Two Time Inspectors from the future, his brother and a long-time friend all travel back in time to try to save him, but without being able to reveal the future, or risk the outcome of the Civil war, can they free Dan before his hanging and get him back home before permanent damage is done to the timeline?
