Mays recounts the wartime exploits of Melinda Pritchard Blalock, who was one of a number of women soldiers during the Civil War. She went to war as her husband's brother. Although they were both Unionists, they decided it was easier to join the Confederate forces in Eastern North Carolina, and then cross to the Union lines later.
