Militia vs. Redcoats Battle … Militia and Redcoats fire on each other in a desperate faceto- face battle. A horse charge from the Red Coats chases the militia into a valley and at first seems to turn the tide, however they are then ambushed by the Colonial Army. There are cannonball explosions, saddle falls, horse falls, back over and squibs aplenty. Then there’s an all-out hand-to-hand battle with pistols, swords, rifles and bayonets. The scene integrates an army of performers and horses and intricately timed explosions.
