Title sequence plays on the projector as the OFFICER comically rounds up TROUBLE MAKERS and drags them off to school. Up beat jazz plays in the background.

SNAP-SNAP-SNAP. The SCHOOLMASTER draws the STUDENTS to attention with the sound of his ruler. He raises his nose, giving a stiff bow, before quickly scribbling his name across the chalkboard. He quickly paces across the front of the class room, eyeing each of the students, before placing a poster from the revolutionary war on the chalkboard and slamming open a ridiculously large text book

Dream 1

Two lines of soldiers march out on either side of the stage, in a blend of the Revolutionary War styles discussed in the class room scenes, and the World War two scene described by the brother. The two lines open fire on each other and soldiers fall, as they charge each other drawing swords or daggers and the boy dreams of himself fighting alongside his brother. The scene quickly turns dark though

Ending

The soldiers come to the door and knock as the family are eating. The,boy jumps up answering it expecting a new telegraph, then slowly backs away, sinking to the floor. The father slowly rises as the mother stands straight up, then ushers the younger kids into the back rooms. Weeping, the boy rooms into the center of the stage as everything goes black around him and sinks to his knees as the muffled sound of gunshots can be heard.
