While playing cards a young boy tells Bronco a woman is looking for him. He leaves the game following the boy to the hotel where a beautiful woman tells him she wants to hire him for $10 a day and meals to guide her to a ghost town with which he is familiar. She is an author writing about the history of ghost towns. Bronco accepts the job but as they ride into the burned out town he finds himself surrounded by three men with guns - one of which is Sheriff Frank Sutton. Another is Van Dix who was a major in the U.S. Army during the Civil War. Another group of men are building a gallows near the one standing building - the church - where they take Bronco. They are planning a trial and a hanging for Bronco for his part in the burning of the town and stealing a gold shipment for the rebels. Bronco admits working for the south but denies he got the gold or burned the town. In flashbacks the group recalls the details. Written by Anonymous
