The story relays the outrageous life stories of four forgotten Civil War heroes: an opium-addicted gay colonel, an elderly Chinese launderer, a nerdy escaped slave, and a one-armed teenaged prostitute. Both wickedly satirical and deeply affectionate, The Battle of Pussy Willow Creek tells the "100% true" story of how these outsiders saved the Union from a nefarious foreign plot, only to have their stunning victory stricken from the history books.
