Ratonhnhaké:ton walked in on Franklin trying to pry the horseshoe loose. As he spoke, Franklin looked up briefly but did not stop loosening the horseshoe.
- Franklin: Sam and Kanen'tó:kon have gone with what's left of the men to Boston Neck. I hope they make it.
- Ratonhnhaké:ton: We should join them as soon as we can.
Franklin finally wrenched the horseshoe off the horse's hoof and the two began walking towards the furnace that Franklin prepared earlier.
- Franklin: First, I must melt this down. Then I need the diagram of my design. I left it with an officer as a kind of insurance policy. He can almost always be found at the tavern. Get that and I can file this shape to the correct precision.
Ratonhnhaké:ton nodded and eventually made his way into the tavern. As soon as he entered, Bluecoats began eyeing him suspiciously, forcing Ratonhnhaké:ton to blend in quickly.
- Bluecoats: Look at that outfit.
The likes of him don't belong in here.
I prefer to drink without fellas like him around.
Ratonhnhaké:ton found the officer sitting at a table with a checkerboard. He took a seat across the officer.
- Ratonhnhaké:ton: Benjamin Franklin sent me to you.
- Officer: Sorry, my friend. You want something, you've got to beat me.
- Ratonhnhaké:ton: I do not have a lot of time.
- Officer: That's my condition.
- Ratonhnhaké:ton: Very well, but let's make it quick.
As the Officer and Ratonhnhaké:ton played, the Officer began to suggest that Boston Neck and the game were traps.
- Officer: Did you hear about the little fracas went down tonight? It was quite a battle. 'Battle' is bein' generous. More like a massacre. Bunch a' fellers got suckered by Putnam. Pretty funny.
- Ratonhnhaké:ton: What do you mean, got suckered?
- Officer: Shootin' fish in a barrel, really. Dumb fish.
- Ratonhnhaké:ton: What are you talking about?
- Officer: Putnam started a rumor that the Captain of the Guard was friendly to the rebels. Hilarious.
- Ratonhnhaké:ton: What!?
- Officer: Yep. ol' Putnam tricked those Redcoats into comin' out all in a group to Boston Neck, then just mowed those stupid saps down.
- Ratonhnhaké:ton: Do you know this for a fact?
- Officer: I was there. I saw ol' Adams take his last breath.
Samuel Adams, hit the ground like a sack of flour. Fought back like a sack, too, frankly. Pleasure see him sent off to Hades.
Ratonhnhaké:ton narrowed his eyes as the officer began laughing.
- Ratonhnhaké:ton: That's it!
Ratonhnhaké:ton picked up the checkerboard and jabbed the officer's face with the edge. The force of the blow knocked the officer into a backwards tilt in his chair and as he came tilting back, Ratonhnhaké:ton struck the officer across the face with the surface of the board. The officer fell out of his chair and lay unconscious on the floor.
- Bluecoat: Get 'im, boys!
The ensuing bar fight destroyed much of the furniture inside the bar. However, the bartender cheered Ratonhnhaké:ton on. Afterwards, Ratonhnhaké:ton searched the officer's body for the diagram.
- Bartender: Good riddance to those louts! They never paid anyway.
Upon exiting the tavern, Ratonhnhaké:ton was met with a large force of Bluecoats. Ratonhnhaké:ton managed to escape and decided to investigate what really happened at Boston Neck.
- Ratonhnhaké:ton: Was that checker player telling the truth? Did Adams run into a trap? I must find out.
Ratonhnhaké:ton eventually arrived at Boston Neck and discreetly searched the area for clues as to what happened. He eventually came across Kanen'tó:kon's tomahawk and his two severed fingers.
- Ratonhnhaké:ton: Kanen'tó:kon's tomahawk! Are these ... are these his fingers?
Continuing his investigation, Ratonhnhaké:ton found a torn piece of Adams's uniform.
- Ratonhnhaké:ton: That's from Sam's uniform. Dried blood.
Standing back up and in denial, Ratonhnhaké:ton decided to find a witness.
- Ratonhnhaké:ton: I have to be certain. Someone must have seen this.
He eventually found someone nearby that confirmed Ratonhnhaké:ton's fears.
- Witness: Terrible, it was. Terrible! The rebels were overwhelmed, outnumbered four to one. I never seen such slaughter. Piteous, piteous slaughter.
After analyzing the evidence, Ratonhnhaké:ton deduced that Adams and the rebels had approached the gate, only for it to be thrown open, revealing Israel Putnam. Adams then scanned the walls and saw multiple sharpshooters trained on his party. Several more surrounded them from other directions. Putnam gazed upon the rebels before barking the order to fire.
- Putnam: Fire!
The Redcoats quickly fell while Sam Adams tried to fight using his pistol. After firing off one shot, he turned around only to be clubbed in the face by Putnam's own pistol. Adams fell to the ground and tried to get back up, but Putnam struck him repeatedly even after he died. Kanen'tó:kon was captured and forced on to his knees by a Bluecoat. Another Bluecoat had confiscated Kanen'tó:kon's tomahawk and Putnam gestured for him to hand it over. Putnam hefted it before using it to savagely strike Kanen'tó:kon.
Ratonhnhaké:ton obtained Franklin's diagrams and headed to Boston Neck where he discovered that Sam Adams was dead and presumed Kanen'tó:kon to be dead as well.
