The Fighting Kentuckian

Synopsis: Following Napoleon's Waterloo defeat and the exile of his officers and their families from France, the U.S.Congress, in 1817, granted four townships in the Alabama territory to the exiles. Led by Colonel Georges Geraud and General Paul DeMarchand, the struggling settlers have made a thriving community, called Demopolis, by the summer of 1819. On a shopping trip to Mobile, Fleurette DeMarchand, the General's daughter, meets John Breen, a Kentucky rifleman, who detours his regiment through Demopolis to court her. But Fleurette, despite her wish to marry for love, must bow to the needs of her fellow exiles, who are at the mercy of the rich and wealthy Blake Randolph, and who wants her as his bride. But John Breen has no intention of allowing that to happen, resigns from his regiment, and takes up the fight against Randolph and his hirelings.

More to go

Only 800 miles more to go

More to go

And if we can just get lucky

We will wind up in Kentucky

Only 800 miles more to go



Breen! We've been looking for you.

- Trouble?

- No, sir.

This lady and these gentlemen

brought me to wait for you.

- May I present Captain Carroll?

- Ma'am.

- Colonel Geraud, Captain Carroll.

- Colonel.

- This is the sheriff of Mobile.

- Sheriff.

And this is Mr., uh... Hayden, isn't it?

And this, sir, is Mr. Randolph.

- Mr. Blake Randolph?

- Yes, sir.

- Who wouldn't let us use the riverboat?

- Yes, sir.

Mm-hm. I see.

Well, fall in when you're finished.

Mademoiselle, forgive me.

Colonel Geraud, my respects, sir.

Sheriff, sorry.

And you, sir, if you ever get up

Kentucky way, drop in and see us.

Forward, hey!

Oh, we thought we were gonna go by boat

And we went to Mobile to have a talk

But the man that owns the water

said he thought we hadn't oughta

So it looks like a long, long walk

Only 800 miles more to go

More to go

Only 800 miles more to go

More to go...

Monsieur Blake,

that Breen business was actually my fault.

- You mean you knew him?

- As one soldier to another.

Colonel Geraud is very gallant

in trying to relieve me of embarrassment.

The truth is I was bored

and acted very foolishly.

- Forgive me.

- Perhaps the fault is mine.

I shouldn't have kept you waiting for so long.

Let's forget that it happened.

Howdy, everybody.

Glad to see you back home, Miss Fleurette.

Folks, General De Marchand has asked me

to take charge of this soire.

That's French.

And it being a special occasion,

announcing the coming wedding

of Miss Fleurette and Mr. Blake Randolph,

ain't nobody barred

from having a good time.

That includes you and the river men,

Carter Ward.
