The Property of Lee Harrison Peeters

Chapter  Twenty Six: Massacre

In the narrow confines of a city street, a company of British troops is lined up on the road. The line in front is kneeling down, their rifles pointed toward the mob that is approaching them. There is a line of men standing behind those that are kneeling, their rifles pointed at the mob. Behind them is another line of soldiers, waiting. At the front of the mob, Mackenzie continues to harangues his followers, urging them on. As they approach the British troops, the troops open fire. The mob freezes as if they hadn’t expected the troops to fire on them. Another volley reigns on them. Men fall to the ground. A few members of the mob have the presence of mind to fire back. But most are set into panic as a third volley of fire hits them. Mackenzie implories his forces to stop and fight. They run.

The stranger sits on his horse watching from the crest of a hill that overlooks the town. His dog barks.

The stranger: “Fools.”
