This focus of this book is primarily about the 13-year post-war relationship between Mosby and Grant, two unlikely warriors plucked from obscurity by the great conflict who became leaders and were considered heroes and legends in their own time—Grant in the North and Mosby in the South—and the virtual incarnation of evil by the other side. It is the story of two men who, at war’s end, put down their weapons and individually sought peace between the sections. Grant found moderate success with his efforts to pacify the South through martial law, which gave a sense of stability to a ruined economy and social structure, but experienced difficulty and frustration with the rising tensions between the races: riots, extreme harassment of blacks, the denial of blacks’ voting and other civil rights and the rise of the Ku Klux Klan and other white supremacist organizations. Mosby, on the other hand, returned to the practice of law in Warrenton, in Virginia’s Piedmont, had a successful and busy practice but found the pace of healing agonizingly slow and painful for him as well as his fellow Virginians.
