Danial Sawyer, a young blacksmith, was considered by the townsfolk of Emerson, Pennsylvania, to be a malingerer and a teller of tall tales who was frequently daydreaming. Daniel's hard and mundane life changed when he met the girl of his dreams, Miss Anna Mae Prophet, a comely young woman who he stumbled upon as she was bathing in a small pond.
As time bonded him and Anna Mae, their forthcoming wedding became postponed by the arrival of war, the war of secession, a violent time where Danial's only escape was through the pleasant dreams of his betrothed. It was after being shot and wounded at the Battle of Gettysburg that Danial finally discovered the truth behind his dreams.
