SERGEANT JUMPER

You’ve gone too far, general.

Stan glares at Jumper and attacks him. He takes a large hunting knife from his belt trying to cut his throat.

Jumper fights back and knocks the knife from his hand. Stan pulls his gun on Jumper and Jumper also knocks it from Stan's hand. The sergeant draws his pistol and points it at Stan. A few soldiers stand around watching.

SERGEANT JUMPER

(continuing)

I respectfully request you relieve

me of my duty, sir.

Stan nods and walks away as Jumper puts his pistol away.

The flames of the Ross home burn high.

INT. LINCOLN STUDY - WHITE HOUSE-WASHINGTON D. C. - DAY

The flames in the fireplace resemble John Ross' burning home.

President Lincoln smiles, listening to John speak.

JOHN ROSS

Our people were loyal to the Union,

but we could not get troops to

defend us until we built our own

army to defend ourselves. The

Confederacy was ready to destroy us,

so I signed.

Lincoln has a look of compassion.

LINCOLN

You're a great statesman, John. I

am sorry we couldn't help you in

your hour of need.

A soldier opens the door and walks in with a message and hands it to President Lincoln. He reads the note. The soldier leaves.

LINCOLN
