The year is 1927. In the hills and back roads of Missouri, two fugitives are about to experience how little times change, as they come across secrets from a not too distant past, and a local legend guarding them closely.
If the good citizens of Blackwater thought they had it bad before, they're about to find out how good it was as the Federal Army takes real control of Blackwater. Without a sheriff, the town's at the mercy of the invaders — and they don't take prisoners.
Atticus continues to try his hand at bounty hunting, with some shocking results. As the Federals dig their heels into Blackwater, Ruth finds the hills around the town getting too crowded for comfort. Will her secret be exposed? And what of Wes?
"Blackwater Falls," part 5. As the wedding all of Blackwater has been waiting for draws near, Ruth's deadly intentions come to fruition, and the town — and government soldiers — won't know what hit them. Meanwhile has Atticus' time and luck finally run out?
Featuring guest; Art by Danijel Zezelj (EL DIABLO, CONGO BILL)! America's dirty and violent underside was exposed during the Civil War and Reconstruction. However, for Atticus Mann, a former slave turned Freeman, the struggle to survived was doubled in the face of racism and brutality.
