Singer-songwriter Kelly Clarkson discovers an ancestor with deep roots in America history. Exploring her mother's side of the family, Kelly investigates the life of her three times great grandfather, Isaiah Rose, who fought against slavery during the American Civil War.

Inspired by stories of his bravery and wartime sacrifice, Kelly traces his role in one of the pivotal battles of the conflict. She is shocked to discover he was taken prisoner by the Confederate army and interned in a brutal prison camp.
