Colonel Macklin, a famous Indian fighter, and his Sergeant buddy have joined Favor's cattle drive as all are headed the same way. Macklin is noted for a famous war-ending victory over the Indians. A drover on the drive, Clanton, also has an unbridled hatred of the Indians. Going against orders, the drover shoots an Indian lad who was just showing off. The Indians sneak into camp at night and silently kill Clanton. They are also intent on breaking the peace treaty and killing all the drovers if they do not hand over Macklin. The reason is that Macklin is guilty of a major atrocity. He defied army orders and attacked the Indians, who were under a flag of peace, killing 245 women, children and old men (no warriors were there). Macklin's rationale was that the Indians would never keep the peace under any circumstances, so he had to resort to "ethnic cleansing" -- killing all children and female "breeders!" Macklin's madness had reached the point that he was being discharged from the Army ... Written by chipe
