Outline

James and Jimmy bury the murdered Union soldier in their furniture warehouse. Pinkerton questions them about Frank and the missing soldier, and discovers evidence of the family’s involvement while searching the house. Alice and Frank successfully exit Alexandria and seek shelter at the home of a young Quaker couple, who recognize Frank as the man in the “Wanted” poster. Nevertheless, Frank decides not to murder them and confesses to Alice that he is tired of killing and has doubts about the Confederate cause. Back at Mansion House, Byron watches as Samuel treats a smallpox victim with a gashed leg and, impressed with his medical prowess, asks Samuel to tutor him for the upcoming exam. Emma and Chaplain Hopkins care for a dying Confederate veteran, who insists on having a Confederate minister give his eulogy. The minister’s pro-slavery and anti-Union sermon enrages Hopkins, who angrily interrupts. Emma takes Hopkins’ side, causing her mother to remark that Emma’s zeal for the Confederacy is slipping away. A French anatomical artist, Lisette Beaufort, arrives and befriends Mary, whose typhoid has worsened. McBurney orders that Mary be sent away to recuperate and dispatches Jed and Nurse Hastings on a field visit so that Jed cannot interfere. Struck by Jed’s love for Mary, Hastings confesses the real reason for the trip, and Jed arrives back just in time to bid Mary farewell.
