FADE TO BLACK.

THE WAR OF 1812. FORTY YEARS AFTER GAINING INDEPENDENCE, THE

UNITED STATES IS ONCE AGAIN AT WAR WITH GREAT BRITAIN.

AFTER RECENTLY DEFEATING NAPOLEON’S ARMIES IN EUROPE, THE

BRITISH HAVE REFOCUSED THEIR MILITARY EFFORTS IN AMERICA.

WITH PUBLIC SUPPORT WANING AND THE BURNING OF WASHINGTON, THE

UNITED STATES IS IN DANGER OF SURRENDERING TO THE REDCOATS.

THIS IS A TRUE STORY.

EXT. COTTON FIELD - DAY

Deep in the South. A handful of SLAVES works the fields.

TITLE:
MOBILE, ALABAMA

A young BOY turns his head and sees a THOUSAND AMERICANTROOPS making their way down a country road. The boy wavesto the troops, but the troops are too tired to wave back.

4.

They’ve been on a journey. Of the thousand, about 400 are

regular enlisted men, while the rest are ragtag militia.

And even though some look like they’d be pretty good in a

fight, just from their disposition marching through the hotsun, it’s clear -- the British redcoats, these men are not.

CAPTAIN:

Company, halt!

The men do, a few immediately taking a knee and drinking fromdry canteens. The CAPTAIN surveys an area over the ridgeahead of them as a man rides up on his HORSE from the rear...

Distinguished, but considerably rough around the edges, thisis MAJOR GENERAL ANDREW JACKSON (47). Once a militia man

from Tennessee, Jackson is now a commissioned officer in the

UNITED STATES ARMY and for lack of a better word, a hard ass.

ANDREW JACKSON:

Captain, these men aren’t scheduledto break for another -

But Jackson stops when he sees it. The quaint French-Spanishcity of MOBILE sits before them on a bay off the GULF COAST.

CAPTAIN:

We’re here, General.

ANDREW JACKSON:

Good. I need a drink.
