John and Talmidge move out toward the fortress. John Looks at Talmidge as they take cover behind two trees.

INT. COMMAND POST TENT
Jackson sees an opportunity made by the Cherokee. He turns to Houston.
Sam, take the reserve troops. Hit'em
with all you got, while the Cherokee
troops keep'em busy.
Houston is eager.
Houston leaves the tent looking toward two sergeants.
Get the reserve troops ready.
The sergeants acknowledge with overlapping dialogue.
Yes, sir! Yes, sir!
The sergeants hurriedly leave.
Houston walks from the command tent.
In the distance he sees Creek warriors pour from the rear of the fortress to attack the advancing Cherokee troops. They fight in ten pitch battles across the back of the fort.
