Summary, etc.: A court of inquiry convenes at the Union Army headquarters to investigate the Battle of the Crater, one of the worst disasters endured by a disaster-prone army. The military news of that spring had been full of unrelenting frustration and outright catastrophe. Lincoln is losing the election, and with it, the war. Fearing the worst, the president calls on his old friend, reporter James O'Reilly, to cover the resulting court of inquiry and file a confidential report on what really happened.
