He takes the reader on the journey describing Morgan's victory at Hartsville, the greatest tactical cavalry battle of the Civil War. Then the Christmas Raid, after which John was captured in Gallatin. No work on one of Morgan's men would be complete without The Great Raid. Stevens' goes to great effort to give life to John's adventure on the raid. John was not captured and made is way through newly formed West Virginia to the rendezvous point in Morristown Tennessee.
He covers the little known fact that Nathan Bedford Forrest would not allow Bragg to dismount Morgan's men and that they served under him at Chickamauga. He brings to light the fact that the remnants of Morgan's command fired the first and last shots in the Battle of Chickamauga at Reeds Bridge.
The reader continues to follow John as he makes his way home following the surrender, a long and arduous trek. We stay with John as he settles back into the life he knew before the war fulfilling his calling as a minister of the gospel, educator, and newspaper publisher.
