Clem and Susannah Brown’s youngest son, Jeff, has developed a good furniture business and has even bought the old saloon building in town and with the help of family and friends has remodeled the building for a furniture store. He has orders from people as far away as Beaumont, Texas. They all became aware of the building up of war in Europe but never thought the U.S. would be involved. Due to several circumstances, the U.S. declares war on Germany April 1917. The draft is passed into law, and Jeff, Jon (Ruth’s husband), and Zeb (newest hired hand) are all drafted. Jon is in the paymaster corps while Jeff and Zeb are fighting in the “muck and mire” of the trenches in France.
