Episode 7

A David L. Wolper Production, Warner Bros. Television, A Warner Communications Company



In 1859, when George returns home he finds his son Tom, now a blacksmith and married himself, serving as head of the family. The possibility of abolition is in the air, and George's freedom is deeply resented by many white men, especially two viciously racist brothers named Evan and Jemmy Brent. When the Civil War begins, Tom is recruited—and cruelly mistreated—as a smith for the army, where he meets a young boy called Ol' George who is to become an important part of their lives.
