Script Details

Please read for any character you prefer. 
Mr. Kelly
(Reading aloud from a newspaper to the group)
“The Government of the United States has shot its bolt. The proclamation of Abraham Lincoln, which we publish this morning, decreeing the unconditional abolition of slavery in all states which shall not submit to his power by the first of January next is the fulfillment of a menace made ever since the commencement of the war.”

Mrs. Kelly
(Shocked and frightened)
Dear God James! That means they’re going to come for you! What’ll happen to all of us if you and all the other men are called into the army?

Mrs. Gladwell
(To Mrs. Kelly)
And what gives those politicians in Richmond the power to snatch you from your home and force you to risk death?

(Speaking passionately but in a conversational tone to the two or three men around him. Loudly enough, however, to be overheard)

…the South has no right to invade our county. I, for one, voted to stay in the Union while slaveholding politicians rushed us into secession. When called on by our government we should’ve raised an army to whip South Carolina back into the Union…”

Mrs. Peters
(To Mr. Peters)
I always knew Mr. Gilliland was a “Union man” but now he’s inciting others. Even though some of our neighbors voted against secession, things are different now.

Mr. Peters
(To Mrs. Peters)
Those rights allow Mr. Gilliland to say whatever he wants as long as he doesn’t act on his rebellious talk or give aid to the Yankees. Besides, he’s not saying that he is planning to fight against Virginia. That would be treason. He just said he wished Virginia hadn’t seceded.
