Storyline

In 1817, Falcon and Banner are sent to Fort Gannon to stop whiskey traders from disrupting the fur trade. The three whiskey traders make the first move, attacking and injuring a preacher integrated into a Native American community. The preacher refuses to tell Banner who attacked him. The violent leader of the whiskey traders attacks the preacher again. Members of the Cree tribe find the preacher near death, and bring him to Fort Gannon. Banner witnesses a telling conversation between the whiskey traders, and confronts the group, leading to a chase and shoot-out. Banner tricks the traders into shooting first, and captures them.
