Chicken George and his youngest son, Tom Murray don't hit it off as they get to know one another again.

When Chicken George is in England in 1849 and bets are taken on the chicken fights, the banknotes have different colors (blue, red). But all British pound notes were monochrome (black on white) until the late 20th century. See more
