“Coy Quillen,” the man said. “Well, I’ll be damned. You ain’t very smart coming back to Texas. Folks around here heard you got killed at Gettysburg. Most allowed it was a good thing, too. Yeah, I heard all about you, Turncoat!”

Quillen kept his voice even. “I fought for the Union because I believed in what they stood for. I’m back in Two Trees because it’s my home.”

The eyes that faced Quillen were cold and full of hate. “Well, that’s real neighborly of you. Here’s something for you to think about when you walk down the street and you can’t see what’s at your back. The South is whipped. And you helped. The only government in Texas is wearing uniforms just like yours. You’re going to be real popular – just like a sitting duck.”
