Matt didn't get much sleep after Jethro's return from Newton. Decided to go to Newton with Turner to ask about what happened. Ellen asks if he could stop by Burdow's but then Matt goes off topic and talks about the sadness they've been going through.

Jethro went to field alone since Matt had a heart attack and was no longer strong enough to work in the fields. A while after, Ed saw him working and offered help whenever he can.
Why cantcha just tell us what in the letter. Forget it ima go to the fields myself
Ed had a newspaper new from Newton talking about a bloody fight in Tennessee regarding Grant being taken by surprise. He told Jethro that Matt had a lot of friends in the county that would be willing to help with work on the fields.
Jenny helps Jethro at the field, and often talked about the war and their siblings. Over time, people started help with Jethro and Jenny more often, and Jethro became Jenny's peer as they worked on the fields.
Jenny got love letter from Shadrach and Jethro irritated that she didn't tell. A while after, Nancy told Jethro to be patient with her because the letter was meant for Jenny only.
Drunk people were threatening the family first by a letter telling them not to stand up for their Rebel son, Bill. Soon after, they burned the barn using coal oil.
