With the thought and prayer of America centered on the nations fighting men in France and the battlefields of the world the Dupont Cavalcade tells the story of one of the group of men, the Army Chaplains Corps who go in to battle armed only by the strength of their faith. The weapons of this corps are the words and acts that sustain and console and give heart to those who bear the brunt of battle. This Cavalcade play is the story of one of those soldiers of faith. It is the story of a chaplain attached to an army air force bombardment group operating in the South West Pacific.

It is based on the actual experiences of Chaplain Taggart as related in the book My Fighting Congregation by Chaplain Taggart and Christopher Cross.
