A little while later Owen questioned why his mother never wrote back to him again. That's when his uncle told him the worst news he had ever heard. Uncle Zach told him that his mother sadly passed away,
Owen did not expect that at all. Hen thought his mother was still alive.
A little while later Shattuck came to search Zach's house. He was looking for deserters. Shattuck then later questioned Owen if he was sent home to heal or left the war.
Shattuck then searched the entire place and saw Owen's horse and told him to trade horses with him. Shattuck said that Owen was injured that he had no need for a good horse.
Later an old friend came over his name was Vance Hubbard. They wanted to go to Owens dad. Owen thought this was a bad idea because Owen and his dad have been in a fight since Owen went to go join the war.
