the 1860s a turbulent and battered Mexico fought for its survival
against a French invasion. For a moment in time, the world order as we
know it today was in question.
|The nascent United States, an independent Mexico, Europe - the world's
balance of power hung in the balance in a chaotic swirl of plots and
intrigues.Yet from this struggle was born a deep national pride and
sense of confidence as Mexico, too long a nation taken for granted,
rose to the challenge and united in heroic resistance.
Follow the action as the interests of Mexicans, Confederates, Unionists,
French, and English collide. Emperors scheme and flail, soldiers fight
and die, nations clash and in the vortex, one young boy follows his
heart to defend his country and become a man.
