“We’re going to approach hidden by the foliage,” commanded the Captain.
Loud cheering and clashing metal could be heard as the crew hid behind the last of the foliage. There was an open field, a thousand yards wide. Nearby, an old brick bridge spanned a brook of rapidly rushing water. Directly ahead stood an army with thousands of infantry and cavalry. The men were dressed in Scottish plaids and had war paint on their faces.
Captain Wonder climbed a tree and used the binoculars to look beyond. “Michaels, climb up and take a look.”
Across the field, Michaels saw another massive army. “There must be over fifteen thousand men including cavalry, Sir. They’re in armor and I can see what looks like a royal crest,” said Michaels.
“I believe we are hiding in Callendar Wood. That is the army of King Edward I Longshanks, House of Plantagenet of England.”
“So we are coming up behind William Wallace and Robert du Bruce?” asked Michaels.
“This is Falkirk! We need to get back to the boat immediately,” commanded the Captain.
