The Devil's Disciple takes place in New Hampshire, in 1777 during the Revolutionary War. British troops move in from Canada under the leadership of Gen. John Burgoyne. The locals, of course, plan to resist, but Burgoyne changes their minds when he publicly hangs a local bigwig named Peter Dudgeon. But he doesn't count on the return of the man's nephew, Richard , the town disgrace and self-named “Devil’s Disciple,” who vows to take revenge. Anthony Anderson, the pastor of a nearby village, understands Dudgeon's position, but he's afraid that his wife, Julia, is falling in love with the rebel. Before it's over, a case of mistaken identity, a mock trial, and a very confused Julia, bring events to a head as Richard prepares to be hanged for reasons entirely his own.
