Essay Topics

What is your opinion of Peyton Farquhar? Do you think he was a willful man bent on his own destruction for his own purposes? Or is he someone to be pitied for his misguided sense of loyalty and duty? Or is he someone else entirely? State your position on Peyton and support your answer with rationale.

In the surprise twist ending of Part 2, the soldier in gray is identified to the reader as a Federal scout. Write a brief essay on how and why Peyton was chosen as a target for the Federal army. Be sure to include your opinion on whether this was a random event or whether Peyton had been singled out for specific reasons.

Explain the role of Mrs. Farquhar in the story. How is she perceived by her husband? By the soldier in gray? Do you think she had any idea that her husband was going to put his life in jeopardy? How do you think she found out that her husband was hanged by the Federal army? Write an essay encompassing all these facets of Mrs. Farquhar from the limited information available about her.
