Owen and Tyson took Mary and Lucy to their kin folk but found that someone told Shattuck what they were doing. The house was guarded buy heel flies hoping to catch them.
Owen and Tyson caught the guard sleeping. They took his gun, but feeling the movement he woke. They made a deal and questioned him about the things he knew. They learned there was spy in camp. By nightfall they left the women, who went somewhere else, and went back to the thickets. They ran into troops.
Luckily Sheriff Chancellor was apart of the group and took watch over them. He let them go when no one was watching. Tyson thought the spy was Red Upjohn. there was a little conflict but Upjohn rode away. Then they saw Banty Tillotson. He pulled a gun on them. He was the spy. Upjohn shot him from the bushes.
Owen was going back to war but stopped at a house for food. He was told the war was over. He started riding back home. There was a desperate lady that wanted him to stay at her house in case Yankees came. He stayed one night. He met Upjohn and was told everyone was caught except the two.
Owen set fire to "Shattuck's" stables. While he worried about that Owen and Upjohn freed the prisoners. They were seen. Shattuck and Owen fired at each other as Shattuck rode into the thickets.
Run before he sees.
Shattuck came out of the forest dying. He could hardly see. He was asking for help. Owen,Andrew,Lucy, and Mary agreed to help. They would take him to town. Tyson and Upjohn were trying to kill him. Lucy and Owen defended him as they put him in the wagon. With all the arguing Shattuck was dead before they could start on the road.
