Opening credits prologue: During the Civil War, southern sympathizers made desperate efforts to aid the confederacy by inciting indian uprisings against defenseless towns along the western frontier.
The objective was to force large withdrawals of northern troops from the main battlefronts, leaving them more vulnerable to southern attack.
This is the story of one such attempt that took place in Dakota Territory in the year 1864. See more »
Gary Merrill stars in this low budget B western from Columbia in which the villain is top billed. Merrill plays a southerner sent out on a mission to disrupt treaty negotiations with the Sioux in the Dakota territory while the Civil War is on. There's a treaty on its way to the Sioux already signed on the Union end by President Abraham Lincoln and arriving later a shipment of gold for the Sioux valued at $100,000.00. That's for not attacking the settlers out in Dakota.
But Merrill is in business for himself. He shoots the American envoy and takes his place. He nearly gets away with what he's doing, but it's a question of one double cross too many.
Merrill's villainy totally dominates the proceedings here. John Bromfield is the northern boy and Wanda Hendrix the southern girl who help put a stop to things. Some more western familiar faces are here. A lot of the cast is killed most by Merrill, some on his behalf before things are set right.
A little far fetched but entertaining nonetheless.
