The grocer has the bodies of The Ridge and Elias laid out in a room, off the store.
Confederate General Stan Watie, dressed in uniform looks at his brother (The Ridge). People of the town stand outside.
Stan looks up and yells outside to the watching people and his soldiers lined in a column on the street waiting for him.
I'll pay ten thousand dollars for
the killer of my brother.
The crowd is silent. They ignore Watie.
Stan walks out in a state of anger. He mounts his powerful gray horse and rides away. His troops follow.
They pass a building with a sign on it.
CLOSE ON THE SIGN - "CHEROKEE NATION SUPREME COURT".

John Ross exits his white southern home located on Main Street. John walks down the street.
The streets are lined with wooden sidewalks and modern metal hitching post in front of new retail buildings that are shaded by a few large oak trees.
John passes a building with a sign on it - "PARK HILL NATIONAL BANK, CHEROKEE NATION".
White and Indian people pass by John dressed in business suits and western attire. They all smile and greet him. Two well-dressed ladies pass by Chief Ross smiling. An expensive carriage rolls down the neatly kept dirt-street in the background.
A confederate uniformed Stan Watie and his soldiers ride through the street toward John. They stop in front of him.
John looks into Stan’s eyes.
