The Frasers must come to terms with all that has changed in the aftermath of the Battle of Alamance Creek; Brianna tries to help Roger overcome the trauma he has endured; an unexpected visitor arrives at the Ridge.
Roger: People live and die by their words. They shape our thoughts and deeds. Often, they define us. Like bullets, once fired, we can't take them back. They have impact, so choose them wisely. Live a life worthy of them, especially your last words. They outlive us. Morgan: And what will yours be, sir? Roger: It is my dying wish, oh Lord, that my students write structured arguments supported by evidence and legible handwriting. Amen! Student: No, really, sir. Roger: I'd say, I'd say let history forget my name, so long as my words and my deeds are remembered by those I love.
