Introduction

Mercy Street is an American period medical drama television series created by Lisa Wolfinger and David Zabel.

Outline

A Union victory at Antietam (Sharpsburg) convinces President Lincoln to issue an Emancipation Proclamation, and James’ cotton diplomacy plan falls apart, as the British no longer want an alliance with the slave-holding Confederacy. Jane learns of Alice’s membership in the Knights of the Golden Circle and disapproves. With Pinkerton’s investigation closing in, James decides to torch the family warehouse where the murdered Union soldier is buried. Back at Mansion House, Matron Brennan joins Byron’s and Anne’s plot to destroy McBurney. Belinda is reunited with her long-lost beau, George, and Emma, hoping to bring Hopkins out of his despair, asks him to marry the couple. Jed, accompanied by Samuel, visits his Confederate-sympathiser family to deliver a prosthetic leg to his brother, and clashes with his mother and brother over the morality and future of slavery, especially after learning that his brother fathered a child with one of the family’s slaves through rape. An emboldened Samuel departs for medical school in Philadelphia, and Jed heads to Boston, where he is reunited with a gravely ill Mary and vows to continue to care for her.
