Luke Perry: Captain Beaumont Butler Buell - he ranked right alongside of Stuart, Mosby, Fitzhugh Lee. Whatever happened to him?

Beaumont Butler Buell: Captain Buell died at Gettysburg. I buried him myself.

Luke Perry: I can understand that, but why?

Beaumont Butler Buell: You saw what was left of Virginia - ashes, gravestones, crippled ex-soldiers pickin' rags. I was raised to breed horses and drink mint juleps... to be a professional gentleman. Me a rag picker? Not Beau Buell. I borrowed a horse from a carpetbagger and for some reason he objected. I shot him in self-defense but the posse didn't see it that way and I been ridin' ever since.

Luke Perry: You only been ridin' part of the time, Captain, but you been runnin' all of the time - and not with gentlemen mint julep drinkers and horse breeders. You've been runnin' with a pack of wolves.
