Summary
The film, inspired by actual events, takes place in upstate New York, circa 1862. Dairy farmer Abner Beech despises slavery, but just as passionately opposes the war that President Lincoln is waging, all in the name of "union", hundreds of miles away. Abner is neither a Yankee nor a Rebel. He is what is known as a "Copperhead". A local anti-slavery zealot named Hagadorn stirs up the town against him, with pamphlets and rumors that prompt shopkeepers to boycott Abner's dairy products
