Marshal Earp must deal with a variety of reactions when Dodge City's citizens learn that General William T. Sherman plans to board a train in their town. Former union soldiers insist on welcoming the general with parades, bands and speeches, ex-confederates want to welcome him with bullets and religious fanatics plan to picket all of the festivities because of his Indian war policies. To top off Marshal Earp's problems, a group of Eastern newspaper correspondents incite barroom brawls with all the factions.
