As 1858 dawned, the men who would become the iconic figures of the Civil War had no idea it was about to occur: Jefferson Davis was dying, Robert E. Lee was on the verge of resigning from the military, and William Tecumseh Sherman had been reduced to running a roadside food stand. By the end of 1858, the North and South were set on a collision course that would end with the deaths of 630,000 young men and change the lives of these iconic historical men forever.
This is the story of seven men on the brink of a war that would transform them into American legends and the events of the year that set our union on fire.
