The aftermath of a Civil War battle through the eyes of a Confederate soldier. The wounded are dragged to a makeshift hospital to face doctors with blunt saws, others suffocate under the weight of fallen comrades, scavengers invade the battlefield to strip the dead of valuables. He is lucky, his wounds are light and a nurse falls in love with him
