THE MAIN HALLWAY. Marion checks that the doors are closed

and bolted. He heads up the stairs.

INT. BOYS' BEDROOM - NIGHT

Marion enters, finding William asleep on the floor and

Nathan and Samuel in bed. He lifts William into bed,

takes a slingshot from Nathan's hand, tucks in Samuel and

walks out.

INT. GIRLS' BEDROOM - NIGHT

Marion steps to the doorway, finding Margaret and Susan at

the window, looking up at the night sky.

MARGARET:

... now count five finger lengths up

from the front two stars of the Big

Dipper, and that's the North Star,

that's her.

Susan gazes up at the North Star. The girls notice Marion

and climb into bed. He puts a chair against Susan's bed

and kisses her. He pulls a blanket up around Margaret,

who whispers:

MARGARET:

It helps her to know Mother's there.

Marion nods with a thin smile, kisses Margaret and walks

out.

INT. MARION'S STUDY - NIGHT

Squadrons of lead soldiers stand ready for battle as

Thomas, lying on the floor, deploys his men. Gabriel

reads the new pamphlets and broadsides. Marion walks in

and pours a drink. Gabriel hands several of the pamphlets

to his father.

GABRIEL:

The New York and Rhode Island

assemblies have been dissolved...

MARION:

The middle colonies?

GABRIEL:

Rioting both sides of the bay, in

Chestertown they burned the Customs

House and tar-and-feathered the

Customs Agent. He died of burns.

In Wilmington they killed a Royal

Magistrate and two Redcoats.

MARION:

Anything about the convention in

Philadelphia?

GABRIEL:

Poor Richard says they'll make a

Declaration of Independence by July.

Marion shakes his head and sits down, carefully extracting

a delicate pair of reading glasses from a wooden box. He

begins reading.

GABRIEL:

Scott Higgins joined the militia.

Marion hears but doesn't respond. Thomas looks up from

his lead soldiers.
