farm in Virginia. Young Lula McLean still played with her doll as
the soldiers came and went. When it became clear that it was unsafe
to stay at their home. Lula's father moved the family into a house further
away from the fighting. Litlle could he have known what role he would
have in the Civil War. This is based on the true story of the McLean
