onfederate Sergeant Joseph Paradine goes into the nearby town and finds that the Union forces there seem to be frozen in time. He learns from an old man that he is a male witch and has cast a spell on them using his book of magic. The old man sees the Yankees as invaders and is keen that the South win the war. Knowing that he is going to die by sunset, he gladly gives his book of witchcraft to Paradine to support the cause. When he returns to camp, Paradine's commanding officer is far more concerned about the battle they will enter into the next morning that about the book his Sergeant has in his possession.
