Storyline

Although the series was originally aired in 8 parts in the US, it was reedited into 6 parts for its UK release. This is the final episode in both versions. The war is over, the Confederacy having surrendered, freeing the slaves. Mr. Harvey invites the slaves to stay if they wish, maybe sharecropping. The rest of the plantation owners, a senator and the sheriff have a meeting to discuss options, with the senator declaring that he's come to buy a lot of land. When tempers flare, the sheriff leaves as he is "bound to uphold the law". President Lincoln is dead, shot by a white man. The former Harvey slaves' encampment is visited by masked men with torches on horses and Harvey is warned to "keep out of it".
