I found a Yankee! To be accurate, a beautiful black horse brought a Yankee to me.
What am I going to do with him? My father will turn him over to the Home Guard in an instant. Southerners are supposed to open their homes to guests and be the perfect hosts, except when it comes to a Yankee.
I know nothing of the war, but I can hear the cannons and the gunfire from our Virginia plantation. This soldier was obviously shot wherever that battle is going on. He is a handsome man, despite the dirt and blood.
As a good Christian woman, I must help the unfortunate, even if they are my enemy. Mother Kizzie would help me, but I cannot get a servant involved with this. He was given to me for a reason, therefore, it is my duty to care for him as best I can.

Oh, why is the clock moving so slowly and why did it have to rain?
~Jennifer Winston, mistress of Pleasant Run Manor
