Peyton Farqhuar was a well-to-do planter of an old and highly respected Alabama family Being a slave owner and like other slave owners a politician he was naturally an original secessionist and ardently devoted to the Southern cause Circumstances of an imperious nature kept Farqhuar from being able to join the very army in which he had fought the disastrous campaigns and had chafed under the glorious restraint longing for the release of his energies the larger than life of the soldier the opportunity for distinction Therefore he did whatever he could to help in aid of the soldiers No service was too humble no adventure too perilous for him to undertake if it were consistent with the character of a civilian who was a soldier at heart Nevertheless Farqhuar was blinded by that enthusiasm which ultimately resulted in his very own demise Captured by the guards on the bridge and was ordered to be hung the cycle started Farqhuar the man to be hung started to reminisce about everything He remembered the times of his childhood and his youth Farqhuar in no way wanted to die Whatever happened to him he would do everything in his might to return back home to his family alive When Farqhuar was tossed off the bridge the hemp rope surrounding his neck over a black cloth broke and Farqhuar ended up in the water He was not sure for a moment if he had been hung or by some possibility still be alive Quickly he realized he was in the water and was alive He now had to use very smart moves best he could as his hands were bound behind his back and he was still in darkness The guards spotted him and began shooting They missed but he knew they would not miss him a second time I must go deeper under the water he thought I have to get as far away from the guards
