HOW TO CHANGE REAR BRAKES

1999 Ford Escort

Brakes problem
1999 Ford Escort 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 140000 miles

I am trying to change my brakes on my 99 Escort. I took the tires off both sides and now I am stuck. How do I take the drum off to get to the brakes. There is a huge philips head screw x2 on the front of the plate where tires bolt up. Do they need to come out?
