Raiders of the Western & Atlantic
Southern lady Amanda Waymeier received two letters one day. One was from her favorite nephew who was caretaker of what had been a U.S. Mint before Georgia seceded from the Union. He asked his aunt to put up the men who would be guarding the gold and silver on its way to Marietta, Georgia. The other was from her son, a private in the 2nd Ohio Volunteer Infantry, who was going to be part of a daring mission to steal The General behind enemy lines and drive the engine to safety behind Union lines. Amanda has devises a plot to steal the gold and silver and rendezvous with The General, thereby helping the Union as well as her own precarious financial situation. If the plan works, Amelia will not end up in the poorhouse. If it doesn’t, she’ll be executed as a spy!
