During the summer of 1865 while America was preoccupied with the brutal and costly Civil War, approximately 10,000 crack French troops installed Maximillian in Mexico City as the de facto Emperor of all Mexico. The entire Lincoln Cabinet, the overwhelming majority of the United States Congress as well as President Lincoln himself then seriously considered this French action as a prime cause for war but our long civil strife over the Souths attempted secession precluded any additional hostilities until peace was restored.

The task of removing this interloper peacefully was assigned by the President to an obscure Undersecretary of War by the name of Charles Dana and he in turn recruited several young individuals to first determine the true intent of the French government and then their method for holding on to this foray into the Western Hemisphere in spite of the clear intent of the Monroe Doctrine. In these pages you learn of the clever undercover work by this Undersecretary and his well-chosen agents as they manage to not only uncover the French plan but also carry out the tactics designed by the Undersecretary to frustrate the French mission without the necessity of war with our very first ally.
