two Captains and ten trooper’s lying dead between the bluffs.
BACK TO SCENE
Sevier rides across the area ordering a clean retreat.
Follow me, men. Follow me.
Sergeant Prince quickly rides past the wounded Captain Casteel and grabs him by the arm. The captain swings up on Prince’s horse and they ride back to safety.
Sevier and his men move a safe distance away from the bluffs near Prince and Casteel. The fight stops and all is quiet.
Prince and Casteel dismount. The sergeant lies Captain Casteel on the ground. He puts a handkerchief on his captain’s stomach wound.
You’re safe here. I’ll be back.
Prince remounts. Sevier rallies his troops in front of Prince and Casteel.
The troops charge toward the Cherokee warriors again trying to move up a narrow trail on the side of the hill.
Prince rides quickly to join the determined soldiers. The darts, arrows and bullets rain down again. Three solders fall to the ground dead.
Sevier signals his men to retreat.
