Tension is rising for Morgan. With Fred ready to give birth and the revelation that Mary is also pregnant, spirits are high in the community. For Morgan, however, it’s just one more thing to worry about. His mom and dad are now settled in and getting to work, but the babies are coming, the milking barn needs to be built and the power plant kept running. To make matters worse, they’re now dealing with the US Army.
Morgan has real concerns once he hears about the Army’s plans and what they expect of the people of Lake County. After more than a year without the rule of law, are the people ready to return to it? Is he? Are men and women who have become accustomed to doing as they see fit ready to return to a civil contract society? Or something more closely resembling the decadence that only recently died?
Morgan and his group have an immense arsenal at their disposal, but they lack manpower. A militia is needed and Morgan is already building one. Neither Sarge nor Morgan will let the Army throw its weight around. If the Army has tyrannical plans, the people of Lake County have the means to disagree. But they will need help. Sarge has an ambitious plan but will need Morgan to make it work.
