Friendly Persuasion

I was only joking.
I never want to see thee again!
Mattie, wait!
Good evening, Mr. Birdwell.
Getting ready to leave us again?
Yes, sir. And I'm reporting
to the home guard tonight.

I came to say goodbye.
Come on down.
This is no way to treat a guest.

Would thee please ask him to excuse me?
I hurt her feelings.
It's the last thing I wanted to do.
I know how that is.
I was clumsy.
With women it's hard
not to be sometimes.

The rebs are coming!
Morgan's Raiders have crossed the Ohio.
1500 horsemen burning and pillaging.

They're 30 miles from Vernon.
This time tomorrow they'll be here!

No need to shout.
- Did thee see their patrols?
- No, but I saw what they've done.

Barns burned, houses looted.
Go towards Vernon and see for thyself.

Did you see the militia?
They want every man who can carry a gun.
They figure to make a stand at Vernon.

Papa, our farm is going to be
overrun for sure!

That's probably true.
You're on the south side of the river.

You better take your family into the
woods tomorrow till the rebs have gone.

This is our home.
This is where we'll stay.
