June, 1864, General David Hunter and his army of 18,000 Union soldiers are ordered to capture Lynchburg, Virginia. If Hunter can seize this important supply and transportation center, it might cripple the southern Confederacy and end the war. Defended only by old men and young boys, Lynchburg must prepare for the worst. Filmed at original locations in and around Lynchburg, this dramatic documentary recounts Hunter's raid through the voices of the soldiers and civilians who were there.
