- Hey.

- Nice shiny blade there.

Stand easy.

They're ours.

Stand easy!

Looks like you claimed

another easy victory

for the union, major.

Where's your regiment from?

Kind of a ragtag bunch

from all over.

Well, lookee here,

this one's still alive.

Just finish him off, Cyril.

Well, now,

where is the fun in that?

Don't kill me.

Look, I know something.

We're going to pick up our pay.

It's coming all in gold...

six union regiments' worth.


Uh, deliverance creek,



Ah, I don't know.

I didn't hear that part.

You didn't hear that part.

Well, then I guess

you don't need

both these ears of yours,

now, do you?

And look, see,

I could use another pair

for my collection.

No, please! Don't!

Stop! Aah!


Come on, boys,

let's move out!


I'm gonna get you.

I'm gonna get you.


You have the worst timing.

Oh, come on, I'm one

of only two deputies left.

When I saw you riding up,

I thought you was Harlan

coming home.

You know, you want me

to stop coming by, Belle,

just say so.


I want to see more

of you, Nate.

In fact, I don't know

what we're waiting for.

I haven't had even a letter

in over two years,

and if that don't

make me a widow...

Don't sit right... me being

with another man's wife,

but I couldn't have stopped this

even if I tried.

So, when the time comes,

will you marry me?


But you're not saying

we have to wait until then,

though, are you?

No, ma'am.

I'm off duty Sunday.

You can be back before sunup.

Now, come on...

Let's go scare the hell

out of those kids of yours, huh?


What do you want?

Oh, just making sure

everything's all right

over here, neighbor.

Thank you for checking in on us,

but we're making do.

You'll have to excuse me.

I have supper to fix.

Well, now, come on, now.

I see deputy cooper

riding up here all the time.

Why accept his help

when I'm right next door?

You're drunk.

Go on home and sleep it off.


You goddamn bitch!


Get off my ranch!

You're gonna regret this.

Give my regards

to your wife.

Where have you been?

I went over to tell

Belle Barlowe

her calves got

mixed in with ours.

She went off hollering.

I shouldn't even have

to deal with that woman.

That land should be ours,


That burr in your boot

have anything to do

with that handprint

on your cheek, Jeb?

You even listening

to me, woman?

I'm telling you what's what.

Well, go clean up for supper.

You got to leave tonight.

It's true.

You know I don't know

what it says.

Slave auction's

coming here Monday.

This was on master's desk

with a list.

You and the boys

are on it, Moses.

There's peppers

to throw off the dogs

and enough food to last

till you get there.

Wait. You're not

coming with us?

- Little Edward's still poorly.

- Kessie.

Master thinks I'm down here

making a mustard plaster.

If I leave now, he'll know

five minutes after I've left.

Then we'll wait.

We go together.

You go now. He won't even

notice you're gone till morning.

I'll pick my time and go.

It's okay, baby. We're gonna be

together real soon.

Kessiah... Kessie,

master's looking for ya!

I'm coming, Alma!

They'll leave you

at the schoolhouse

in deliverance creek, Missouri.

I know all about

the underground railroad, Ben.

I just want you to be aware,

now, that's all.

You spent all summer trying

to talk me into this, Ben,

and now you're trying

to talk me out of it?

Don't... now, Hattie Gatlin...

what's this, just wanting

to use my schoolhouse

but not have me pick them up?

You heard what happened

to those Quakers out in Fayette?
