The Civil War sergeant plays the song "Black Is the Colour (Of My True Love's Hair)", a Scottish-American song which has not been proven to predate 1915. See more »
Incident on a dirt road during the month of April, the year 1865. As we've already pointed out, it's a road that won't be found on a map, but it's one of many that lead in and out of the Twilight Zone.

James Gregory stars as a Confederate Sergeant who finds himself walking along a road with many other soldiers. He stops by the home of a Southern Widow(played by Joana Linville) and they start to talk about many things like the war and its outcome, as many passersby travel the road in front of her home. She is bitter about losing her husband, and wants to kill the Yankees, but the war is lost for them, and it becomes obvious that they will have to leave her home, and travel down that long road themselves... Good performances help stagy episode that still manages to work, creating an effective melancholy atmosphere, and the last victim of the war makes a most poignant appearance...
