Amelia is a heroic Civil War tale of one woman’s search for her husband across the battlefields of America, a story revealing the dignity of the life of an ordinary person in an extraordinary time. An outspoken farmer’s daughter, Amelia, marries a general store clerk who then heads off with the Pennsylvania 20th to fight "Johnny Reb." When he stops writing to her she decides to find him, or find out what happened to him, and begins her journey across the war torn country, disguising herself as a man and ending up at the war’s worst prison encampment, the notorious Andersonville Prison Camp.
