The woman, Lavinia, talks about her husband and admits that he was killed in the War.

Narrator: This road is the afterwards of the Civil War. It began at Fort Sumter, South Carolina, and ended at a place called Appomattox. It's littered with the residue of broken battles and shattered dreams. In just a moment, you will enter a strange province that knows neither North nor South, a place we call the Twilight Zone.
The Sargeant: Well, war claims a lot of victims. Men, animals, God's own beauty.
Lieutenant: Is this your pleasure, ma'am?
Lavinia: And duty. A little of both, perhaps.

Narrator: Incident on a dirt road during the month of April, the year 1865. As we've already pointed out, it's a road that won't be found on a map, but it's one of many that lead in and out of the Twilight Zone.
