Sam, meet The Ridge, Major Ridge.
Sam extends his hand and they shake. The Ridge smiles.
I know of you, Sam Houston. A friend
to the Cherokee.
John smiles. Sam nods. The Ridge pats Sam on the arm and leaves.
A uniformed Cherokee soldier yells out in broken English.
John Ross, our troops are ready.
John looks at him then back at General Jackson in the campaign tent.
Jackson looks at John.
Go, Lieutenant Ross.
John leaves as Sam Houston looks on.
SAM HOUSTON P.O.V.
John moves across the broad battlefield to his Cherokee troops positioned across the river behind the Creeks barricade.
BACK TO SCENE
Sam smiles and looks at the general.
Dam fine people, solid as a rock.
The general nods. He turns back to the battle scene.
