36 Hours



The year is 1868 and Tommy is a volunteer recruit for the Union army in the waning days of a re-imagined Civil War. The Confederacy, armed with a powerful new invention dubbed the Water Engine, has won at Antietam and Gettysburg and pushed the Union back. Washington is surrounded and Baltimore is under siege. Should the great port city fall, all hope for Washington to remain in Union hands will be gone. While Tommy and his friends fight and die in the trenches around the beleaguered city, the Union and Confederacy meet to talk of possible peace.

This is not a story about glory and heroism on the battlefield, but of a simpler glory, the glory won through the bond between friends and staying alive for another hour.
