About Montgomery[]

After being found by a black runaway slave family, Sam, who leaps into his great-grandfather Capt. John Beckett a Union Army officer, winds up at the Covington plantation, getting hid by the Covington servant slave Issac King (Michael D. Roberts), who was secretly, without Olivia's knowledge, was harboring escaped slaves and aiding them in a trek to the North via The Underground Railroad.

Montgomery, after discovering Issac and some slaves which he was hiding with Sam in the Covington barn, tries to use the situation to make an unwanted advance upon Olivia Barrett Covington, the plantation owner who is Sam's great-grandmother.

After getting some soldiers of Montgomery who were supposed to be guarding Issac, who they planned to hang, and Sam, who was supposed to be their POW, drunk on some 1821 vintage Brandy, and knocking them unconscious, the two Sam, and Issac are able to subdue the lecherous Montgomery, save each other as well as Olivia, and flee the plantation.
