The hurt feelings from the Civil War continue with the Texan cattlemen taking out their hatred against the northern Marshals including Earp. Texan Drum Denman never fought in the Civil War but he decides to continue the fight by backing a newspaper in Dodge City which he forces to print slanderous stories about Earp trying to draw him out of town where he can be killed. His second story that Earp is having an affair with Sally Davis the teenage daughter of the local minister brings her in tears to Earp. Earp decides to temporarily leave his job and go after Denman and his gang alone. Two old adversaries of Earp are in the gang: Curly and John Ringgold. Although it is one against many, Earp uses some creative fighting techniques to corral the gang. Written by Anonymous
