The music slows and Talmidge sits at attention while he plays.

The preacher turns to John and Quatie as they stop in front of him and suddenly breaks into a huge fake smile.

ARMSTRONG

Are you ready?

John and Quatie look at each other filled with love and nod.

The piano music gets louder. The music blends into the sounds of an ongoing battle; canon’s blast, the gunfire echoes and war cries fill the air.

DISSOLVE TO:

EXT. BATTLEFIELD, CREEK TERRITORY

Three thousand Union soldiers are poised to attack a

barricaded bunker held by one thousand Creek Warriors. Twentyfour hundred white troops and six hundred Cherokee troops wait to over-run the Creek warriors. The Creek continually lay down a barrage of gunfire, not allowing the U. S. Troops to move without huge casualties.

The walls of the Creek bunker are lined with warriors carrying bright red battle clubs, rifles and pistols.

EXT. COMMAND POST

John Ross in full combat uniform wearing the rank of first lieutenant stands with General Andrew Jackson viewing the battle scene from inside the command tent. The tents rolled up sides allow full view of the final conflict of the Creek war with the United States.

The Ridge walks into the big tent in uniform, wearing the rank of Major. Ridge talks inaudibly with John and General Jackson. The sounds of battle rage in the background. He takes a map and leaves. John follows him out.

SAM HOUSTON, a strong looking man, in combat uniform walks to the command post tent as John and The Ridge talk. They greet each other.
