In terms reminiscent of Shermans assault on Atlanta, Baltimore stockbrokers attempt to gain control of an institution as emblematic of southern culture and manners as Tara in Gone With the Wind. Fought this time with proxies and ballots instead of musket balls, this conflict puts to the test the hearts and minds of a generation who thought they had outgrown the biases and prejudices of the survivors of the War Between the States.
