In late April, 1862, a young soldier receives the news of his wife's pregnancy during a visit to his encampment. He breaks the news to her that the home guards, stationed near Corinth, Miss., are getting prepared to be sent away to battle because of the growing number of Union troops advancing since the battle of Shiloh. Although the wife's news is welcomed, they are both sad and afraid as they are going to be separated while he is defending his homeland.
