John quickly moves down the hill to help the rattled warrior.
Sevier and his troops bear down on Stan. Cherokee warriors begin to fire their weapons. The soldiers return fire.
Sevier continues bearing down on Stan with his saber drawn.
John slides to a stop beside the injured Stan. He is just in time to ward off Sevier with a broken tree limb he picks up at the scene. Sevier rides past the pair striking the limb hard. He turns his horse and charges John and Stan again. A hail of gunfire surrounds Sevier.
The shooting stops. Both sides don’t want to accidentally shoot their own. They wait to see the outcome of Sevier’s charge.
John throws his body against the charging horse's front legs. The horse stumbles and Sevier falls to the ground.
The young John recovers and grabs Sevier's saber lying on the ground. John stands over the stunned Sevier with both hands in the air, holding the saber high to run him through. John hesitates.
Sevier quietly looks up at John resigned to his fate.
Stan weakly tries to get up. He speaks with anger.
John glances at Stan. He then looks back at Sevier with a disgusted gaze. John gets off of Sevier and breaks the saber over his knee. He then throws it beside Sevier.
John walks to the injured Stan and helps him get up.
Sevier looks toward his ready troops and stands. He puts a hand up to stop his people from starting the fight again.
They continue to stand ready.
