Mary has built the 'British Hotel', which is closer to the battlefield than Florence Nightingale's hospital. She describes how she treated the wounded soldiers, becoming affectionately known as 'Mother Seacole'. Later she is visited by William Howard Russell, a journalist from The Times newspaper, who wishes to write an article about her.

After the British reclaim a key city from the Russians, Mary attends a celebratory march.

After the war had ended Mary describes how she couldn't sell the British Hotel, so just had to pack up and leave, with many debts. Back in London, she couldn't afford to keep her loyal maid Sally on. Sally was devastated by this and was angry that everyone seemed to have forgotten how much Mary had done during the war.

Then, fortuitously, they received a surprise visit from journalist William Howard Russell. When he heard about Mary’s plight, he determined to remind the British people of her work in the Crimea.
