appointed to his staff...

as honorary colonel, Lloyd Sherman.

Draw sabers!

Eyes right!

Eyes front! Present sabers!

This honor has been conferred on you

for distinguished services.

Completely unarmed...

except for your golden curls,

brown eyes and your dimples...

you've captured

an entire regiment- this one.

I take great pleasure in handing you

your commission, Colonel Sherman.

I can't read this writing.

It isn't big enough.

Besides, I can't read anyway.

Oh, I assure you, it's all according

to military regulations.

Now that I'm a colonel,

can't I play with the boys anymore?

- Of course you can.

- Well, you don't.


Do colonels have to

go to bed at 7:

Why, no. Sometimes colonels

stay up as late as 8:00.

- I wish you'd tell my mother that.

- I will.

Now I'll show that I'm a real colonel.

Attention, men.

Company dismissed!

Company dismissed!

You heard the colonel's order.

Well, Colonel, how does it feel

to be in command of a big army like this?

Thank you.

We feel just as proud as she does.

Bob, I want to thank you

for everything.

It's been a great pleasure to have you and

your family with us even for so short a time.

- Quite different from Philadelphia, isn't it?

- Yes, indeed.

We lived there for six years, but I never

got used to the noise of the horse cars.

I understood from Jack

you had sold your home there.

We sold everything-

lock, stock and barrel.

Took Greeley's advice to go West,

and here we are to find our fortune.

Depending on your help for that.

Oh, there's plenty there for the finding,

if we're lucky.

Attention, men!

Present arms!

I do wish I didn't have to

go back home to Lloydsboro.

Now, dear, we've settled all that.

This country's no place

for women and children...
