Summary Billy Forest and Harley Cobb grow up as neighbors and best friends on adjacent farms in 1850's Ohio. When the Civil War starts, Billy is apprenticing with a law firm in Columbus, looking forward to life as a trial attorney. Harley is working his family farm with his father and brothers. Billy and Harley join the 23rd Ohio Volunteers in 1861 and spend the next four years immersed in the horror, tedium and depredations of war. When they muster out in July 1865 they find that they are both changed in ways they don't understand. Besides each other, the only thing they can rely on is their guns. On the way home, they get into a gun battle in which a saddle partner is killed and Billy is seriously wounded. Billy blames himself for their friend's death because he couldn't get his Colt .44 out quickly enough to do his part. When he recovers he swears he will never let another friend down like that again. He becomes obsessed practicing with his guns.
