This book is set in Seneca Falls,NY, in the early days of the Civil War. Like all of Monfredo's books, this one deals with the history of women's rights, but it also shows what it was like in small communities throughout the country when the tragedies of the Civil War permeated their area. If you read the prologue, you won't put the book down. It is also great how Monfredo shows that gun control was an issue back then, too.
