They met on the battlefields of Vicksburg. General Ulysses S. Grant, George Armstrong Custer, and the Rebel Johnny Yuma. Three men united by fate - in a nation divided by war - they were dedicated to freedom, driven to extremes, and destined for greatness. Of the three, Johnny Yuma was the most elusive. A Confederate soldier during the war, he was about to play a key role in Grant's victory for the Union, Lee's surrender at Appomattox, and Custer's deadly campaigns in the West. With a ready finger on the trigger, and a steady aim on both sides of history, his life is the stuff of legend. But the truth has never been told - until now.
