As well as experiencing all the life-defining teenage 21st-century challenges—girls, exams, and the odd spot—Podric’s studying the American Civil War for his GCSE history.  

With Ultimate Alternative Reality (UAR) now established, after the events of the first book, he decides to take a look into the US Civil War conflict. Podric and his friends find adventure at Shiloh, Bull Run, and Gettysburg.
