Lead us to battle, Chief!
So be it then!
Now go from here, call out your gallant men,
And lead them on to death or victory:
"To-day or never!" let the watchword be!
[Handing his sword to Bradburn.]
Here, Bradburn! take my sword! no better man
E'er held its hilt in Freedom's battle-van.
Oh, thanks! my guilt on earth redeemed, forgot.
So ye, my friends in Heaven, reject me not!
The conquered camp of the Mexicans on the battle-field of San Jacinto. The back-ground is filled with smoke amid which soldiers are seen hurrying to and fro. The foreground represents a conquered battery where Bradburn lies stretched on the ground, apparently dead. Sam Houston, followed by Burleson, Deaf Smith and a Surgeon, enter on the rear of the battery. The Surgeon is seen bandaging General Houston's wounded foot, whenever he can do so.
