A tragic accident leaves the father unable to provide for the family, forcing his three young sons to assume all household responsibilities.

The two eldest set out on a trek for help from the Confederate Army rumored to be in Lynchburg. Their journey carries them through the many sights of the county and city, and ultimately leads them to a timely meeting with the army's commanders.
