The war is coming to a close and the Union armies under Ulysses S. Grant now appear to have the upper hand. At the Battle of Petersburg in April 1865, George Hazard sees his friend Orry Main through binoculars. After the battle, George is unable to locate him. The battle proves decisive however leading to Robert E. Lee's surrender at Appomattox on April 9, 1865. With the war over, Billy travels to Mont Royal, followed a while later by Orry after George finds him in a field hospital. Mont Royal hasn't seen the last of Salem Jones however, leading to a death. Virgilia meanwhile has been living in Washington under Sam Greene's protection. When he mockingly tells her that the murder charge against her was dropped some time ago, she takes matters into her own hands. Orry finally locates Madeline and the baby and they are reunited.

While waiting for the director to call "Action!", the Union ranks suddenly shouted the totally impromptu battle cry "Tastes Great!", to which the entire Confederate army immediately replied "Less Filling!".
