Jonathan Banner and Pierre Falcon are sent on a mission with the British military, led by Captain Malton, who immediately suspects Banner of mutiny. Malton sends the Native American guides away violently, believing them to be in league with Banner. Malton's grueling pace leads to a man to fall down of exhaustion, who later dies. Banner and Falcon are eventually tied up and left behind, but rescued by a soldier who sneaks back to free them. The three encounter the corpse of the exhausted soldier and a vicious battle between the British and the Native Americans.
