Abigail is half-heartedly playing the spinet piano when Peter walks into her room and tells her that he is sending her to stay with Mr. Ashford during Flint's trial. She asks him if he is afraid that she will speak the truth in defense of Flint. The Town Crier tells the people of Charles Town of Flint's villainy. Peter walks over to Flint and tells him that Kensington will make a spectacle out of Flint's trial and if Flint signs a confession of his crimes, Flint will be executed privately. As Peter is talking, the body of Miranda is brought into the town square in a coffin. Peter offers to have Miranda buried with proper respects and Flint asks Peter if he betrayed Thomas, Miranda and Flint for a bribe or out of cowardice and Peter doesn't answer him. The Town Crier continues to tell the crowd of Flint's murders of their men and women and how he and Miranda attempted to murder Peter. The townspeople then throw vegetables at Miranda's open coffin.

Kensington shows the crowd the evidence against Flint and asks Flint if he has anything to say in his defense. Flint says that the only thing he regrets is believing that he and Peter could come to reason. A Militia Guard walks up to Peter with a handcuffed Vane. Vane tells him that he has testimony in support of Flint and it is from Abigail's journal, which is handed to Peter. Kensington tells Peter that he may destroy the journal at his own peril, but no matter what, Flint will hang. A Clerk reads aloud from Abigail's journal as Flint asks Vane what his plan is. Around the same time, Vane's men start to invade the town. Vane makes a speech and raises his hands to the air. Vane's men then start firing upon the town square with the town's own cannons. Vane and Flint attack their guards and Flint stabs Peter in the stomach and makes him look at Miranda's body. Flint escapes and has the ship continue to fire upon Charles Town as a dying Peter watches.
