This is the tale of twenty-one Confederate soldiers who staged a raid on the quiet Vermont community of St. Albans in the northernmost land action of the American Civil War. It tells of their leader, Bennett Young of Kentucky, how he planned and carried out the raid, and how the raiders fared in their trials in Canada where they fled with their lives hanging in the balance. In a fictionalized version of the story, Vermont author Ted Tedford weaves a tale to capture the imagination and put readers into the action.
