In this story the author has given a faithful picture of the chief events of the great Civil War. The view taken of the struggle is, as far as possible, an impartial one, and the two heroes of the tale draw their swords upon opposite sides. The leading character, the young Cavalier, goes through a long series of stirring adventures, takes part in the principal actions of the war, is sent as an emissary to Montrose, aids in the attempt to enable the King to escape from Carisbrook, is present at the siege of Drogheda, and is sold as a slave to the plantations.
