Two soldiers take down a sign - "CONFEDERATE STATES ARMY

HEADQUARTERS, CHEROKEE NATION, GENERAL STAN WATIE COMMANDING."

Stan Watie stands near the sign. He surrenders his sword to a Union general. His troops wait unarmed in the background.

John and Baxter stop at a large army garrison tent with the sides rolled up. A long table lined with chairs is inside.

COMMISSIONER BLAKE, A thin mean looking man stands at the head of the table, with twenty-five people listening.

John dismounts and walks slowly to the tent.

Blake looks at John as he enters.

John sits. Talmidge, walks in holding papers. He sits behind John and leans forward whispering to John.

TALMIDGE

John,

These are the papers of the Washington

committee. They leave us blameless.

The Commissioner begins to speak.

COMMISSIONER

Well gentlemen here's your demise.

The Cherokee Nation is guilty of

crimes of succession from the United

Talmidge and John continue to quietly talk as the commissioner speaks. John shows anger for the first time.

JOHN ROSS

Sir, My nation has committed no

crime.

(holds up the papers)
