Enlisting the day after Sumter fell, they fought side by side in every engagement from First Manassas to their last battle at Fredericksburg.

There, on the evening of December 13, 1862, comrades laid them to rest in a shared grave. After more than a century, their descendant rediscovers the Civil War journey of the Harrison brothers and vividly portrays it here. Battles covered include First Manassas (First Bull Run), Yorktown, Williamsburg, Seven Pines, Seven Days, Second Manassas (Second Bull Run), Harpers Ferry, Sharpsburg (Antietam), and Fredericksburg.

Units described in which the brothers served include the Hampton Legion, Third South Carolina Volunteer Infantry Regiment, and the Pee Dee Light Artillery. Commanders mentioned under whom the brothers served include T.L. Bozeman, Wade Hampton, Barnard Bee, W.H.C. Whiting, John Magruder, Maxcy Gregg, David McIntosh, Joseph Kershaw, Joseph E. Johnston, Lindsay Walker, A.P. Hill, Robert E. Lee, and Stonewall Jackson.
