A Re-enactment of a Civil War Re-enactment.


What a faker

 

This is a sketch I wrote a couple months back, thought it was short and sweet.

EXT. PUBLIC PARK BATTLEFIELD – DAY
Fife and drum music plays in the background as a lone soldier emerges from the woods. The Yankee carries a kids toy rifle and wears a new York Yankees baseball cap. His jacket is blue and his pants are blue. Ahead of him 30 yards away is the Confederate dressed in a khaki  jacket, khaki pants and a UNLV Rebels hat, he also has a kids toy rifle.
The marching Yankee gets closer and closer to the stern looking confederate.
The Yankee charges at the confederate. Screaming!
                                                      

                                                             YANKEE
                                           AHHHHH!!!!
                                                             CONFEDERATE
                                           BANG!
(Slow motion)
The Yankee drops to the ground In a slow motion death spiral. A choir full of angels sings softly as the Yankee falls to the ground in a heap motionless.
(Back to regular speed.)

The Confederate soldier Pumps his fist

                                                                 CONFEDERATE
                                       You Dead Yank!?
                                                          

                                                                  YANKEE
                                       Yep!

                                                                  CONFEDERATE
                                       Its Beer time!

The yankee gets up and the confederate walks away from the battlefield.
                                                                                                                                               CUT TO:
EXT. PARK PARKING LOT – DAY
parking lot tailgate.  Confederate sits on lawn chair his trusty toy rifle is next to him, he takes a slow sip of beer viewing what was once a serene park. The Yankee leans against a minivan from the mid 90’s (possibly an Aerostar) he also drinks a beer and looks out fondly  and remembers the destruction that was wrought that day.
              

                                                                      YANKEE
                                      Nice Shot
                                                                   

                                                                      CONFEDERATE
                                      Nice Death, I think I heard angels there for a minute.

                                                                      YANKEE
                                      Yep, thats what happens when an American dies.
