Goofs

When the soldiers are floating the rafts downstream there is very little apparent current. The rafts are moving faster than the current since water is splashing over the front of the raft, this can only happen when a craft is being propelled by something else. There are no oars or paddles on the rafts, so they are being towed by another boat. At times you can see ripple marks ahead of the rafts from the boat that is towing them. See more »

They had to fight Red Cloud, but were divided by the civil war.
14 October 2006 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

At Fort Laramie they made a deal to give gold to chief Red Cloud in exchange for peace. While they are waiting for the gold to arrive, the civil war starts. Part of the soldiers, like Major Bradner who commands the Fort, belong to the South. A state of war starts being created between them and the others, whose leader is Captain Tenslip. At a certain moment half of the Fort is singing Dixie and the other half "John Brown's Body". Tenslip and Bradner's niece Melissa are in love and want to get married, but the night they are going to announce their engagement, they learn about the war. They are now on opposite sides. The director Lesley Selander was an expert in doing westerns, he even made Hopalong Cassidy films. Average western, good story, but tight production budget.
