The difficult dream: the Babcocks dig a well and launch a newspaper
An opportunity for each: Colonel Pope comes to town and helps build an industrial powerhouse
A dream of social order: the government segregates a neighborhood
The fullest stature: original residents are pushed out, the neighborhood gets a reputation-and everyone is baseball crazy
To be recognized: the children of Frog Hollow find champions, and the Newsies fight back
Each man and woman: the Reverend Pennington is free
Growing weary and mistrustful: the neighborhood gets an orphanage
They are innately capable: Dominick Burns opens a bank, and Maria Sañchez shepherds a political force
Regardless of fortuitous circumstances: the ghosts that walk Frog Hollow's streets, and where they're heading.
