Storyline

While researching the final days of the Civil War in Appomattox, Virginia, Shepherd stumbles upon a grave at the gate of a grand home and learns that it contains the body of a Union soldier, which is nevertheless tended with utmost respect. Shepherd is curious about the soldier's date of death on - April 10, 1865, the day after Lee's surrender - and the unusual epitaph, "His life in vain" carved on it's headstone, and wonders how the soldier met his end.

Quotes

[first lines]
Adam Shepherd: [narrating] I was just outside Appomattox, Virginia doing some research on the last days of the Civil War. One of the first families had invited me for dinner, but after a couple of mint juleps, I decided I'd better take a look around and a little air. If you're not a Southerner, those mint juelps can be a little rough.
