Storyboard Text

  • Here he is. How ironic.  A church. Begging his god for forgiveness. Forgiveness for invoulintary actions. He does not want to kill for the cause. The cause of slavery. He does not want to kill for slavery. He wants to fight against slavery, but he has no choice. The lives of his family depends on it. He is a confederate soldier. 
  • He walks out of the church towards his cabin. Yes, his cabin. Though he is fighting for the white man he is still not respected by the white man. He is still a slave. On the way out of the church, he thinks about his last battle;  The Battle of Palmito Ranch
  • He sits the cabin alone. Of course, he is alone. His family is locked up. "Until the war is over and you can go back to work," says his master. So, for now, he sits alone pondering. He ponders until he hears a loud cheering outside. He quickly goes out to see what it is.
  • As he walked outside, he saw a few house slaves standing outside. All of them with joyous looks on their faces. "What is going on, he asked". "The war is over, one of them exclaimed. We lost. Thank God".
  • The celebrating didn't last long. The former master had walked towards the slaves ."Well, he said with a dejected look on his face, you can go. Soldier, I sold your family. Lord knows where they are." The others slaves had walked off while he stood there stunned.
  • His former master walked away not caring that he had sold this mans reasons for fighting. He fell to his knees dejected What was he gonna do? His family was gone. He had no reason to move on. Where did he go from there?
