Talmidge is in a good mood.
I saw Stan a few minutes ago. He

Talmidge pats his friend on the back as John leaves Talmidge and strolls over to his other guest to greet them.
Suddenly fifty Union soldiers burst into the room from every exit with rifles pointed at the party guests.

Sevier surveys the crowded room. His eyes meet John's. John speaks.

Suddenly Confederate General, Stan Watie, pulls his Navy Colt Revolver and shoots the colonel.
