We were backed against the lake. Standing in water. Major Hayward had been shot in the leg, knocking him to the ground. I reached over to help him up and began reloading my firelock. I heard him call for the frist rank to fire, but nothing was heard. I looked up to see only Major Hayward and Lance Corporal Musgrove standing beside me. The fear on my face must have been the same as that that I saw on Musgroves's. We turned to gaze upon the calm waters of Lake George. Stunned, I could hardly move. Someone spotted the canoe just steps from were we stood. The Major gave the order and the three of us piled in. The smoke was so thick we knew not which way to go. Another canoe was starting to appear to our right. The Major, with his pistol in his hand, took aim. It was one of our prisoners. All I remember is that the Major shouted to him saying: "When you fall into British hands again, I'll have you hanged." He returned his pistol to his side and all three of us paddled for our lives. I heard a distant shot ring out. Musgrove slumped over and fell out. There was nothing I could do. I looked over to the other canoe. What was this? Had Chingachgook drank from the fountain of youth? Oh, I forgot, Russel Means had told Michael Mann off and quit that day. Burkey, from stunts, was filling in for him until we got to the river. Do you have slow motion?
