Episode Summary

EDIT
Tony and Doug land in the War of 1812 in Louisiana, and steal some clothing that happens to have passes from General Jackson. They are captured by the British forces, led by Colonel Southall. In the present, the Project people bring in Southalll's descendant, a British general. His ancestor has a reputation as a butcher by sending his men into the strongest flank of the American forces. In the past, Col. Southall forces Tony to lead one of his men to the enemy lines, get a report, and send up a signal rocket of which flank he should attack. Tony and the scout get captured, escape, and prepare to send the signal. Meanwhile, General Southall insists on returning to the past. He's dying of cancer, and Kirk reluctantly grants the general, an old friend, his last request. The present Southall helps Doug escape and then confronts his ancestor and manages to convince him he is from the future. Doug helps Tony but the signal rocket goes astray and the attacking British are wiped out. General Southall is mortally wounded, but thankful that he found out his ancestor made an honest mistake and his reputation as a butcher is undeserved. He insists that Tony and Doug tell the true story before dying himself.moreless
