ACT 2 - 05 - Chorus of Soldiers

  Just as David and Daisy are about to elope, David is horrified to hear the Cavalry approaching, singing proudly. Everyone knows it means death for any white man to enter Indian Grounds before David has married Fountain but the soldiers evidentally believe the wedding took place the day before as scheduled.

David realizes he may end up marrying Fountain after all in order to save his comrades.

Cavalry:

Behold the Soldiers of the States, United.
Such men are never shaken or affrighted.
We're stern defenders of the good
And marching proudly, as we should,
Our chins up high, our glamour de trop,
We're more than a match for any foe!
