In a time when raiders, bushwhackers, and Redlegs rode the Cass County, Missouri, countryside bringing fear and destruction with them, Elizabeth Miers and her family barely survived into the next day. When the enemy, in the form of Elizabeth's neighbors, comes a-calling more than once with mischief on their minds, Elizabeth fights back to keep her children safe against men she once called friends. On August 25, 1863, following the issuance of General Order No. 11 , thousands of women, children, and the elderly were forced to vacate their homes in the brutal summer heat within 15 days.
