The field around me grew dark. The guns stopped or maybe I couldn't hear them anymore as I felt myself drifting away. This is the fictional story of Alexander Gatewood, whose dream from the time he was a small boy was to go to West Point and become an army officer and follow in his father's footsteps. His dream becomes a reality when he is accepted and attends West Point in 1857. His dream is then somewhat shattered when, in his fourth year, the South attacks Fort Sumter and he and his Southern classmates leave the "Point" to join the Confederacy. He fights alongside General Longstreet at Gettysburg and questions Lee's strategy. More than thirty years later, he is still haunted by a dream of those three days. Now, as he travels back to his then-beloved West Point, he recalls his life.
