In 1865, McNeill's Rangers, a Confederate guerilla force, rode into Union-occupied Cumberland, Md., in the middle of the night and kidnapped General Benjamin Kelly and General George Crook from their hotel room. Their act was quickly discovered and the rangers had to make a daring escape with their prisoners. This is the story of the planning and daring execution of this raid that became one of the last victories of the Confederacy in the Civil War.
