Synopsis
As Union forces go marching confidently out of Washington D.C., each soldier reminds himself that he has enlisted only for 3 months, and the war should be over within 60 days -- or so they think. The rebels have other ideas. Three Union soldiers become, in their minds, the Three Musketeers and vow to see the battle out together. Reality sets in once one of them falls; this will be a long war.
