[Col. Shaw approaches Rawlins after having Trip horse-whipped for deserting]
Colonel Robert G. Shaw: Mr. Rawlins… this morning, I… it would be a great help to me if I could talk to you from time to time about the men. That’s all.
[turns to leave]
John Rawlins: Shoes, sir.
[Shaw turns around]
John Rawlins: The men need shoes, Colonel.
Colonel Robert G. Shaw: Yes, I’ve been after the quartermaster for some time.
John Rawlins: No, sir. Now. That boy ran off to find him some shoes, Colonel. He wants to fight. Same as the rest of us. More, even.
Happy 70th Birthday to Morgan Freeman!!!
