Rowdy Yates, was ordered to sell a hundred prime beef by an Army Regiment but he refused to give them up without payment in gold, landing him in a fight with the Lieutneant who having the drop on Yates winged him with disabling effect. Later, when the Lieutenant returned with with his Captain, Jed Colby as next up boss sold them 100 head accepting a signed requisition under duress and was told to redeem it at a Fort Broxton 40 miles ahead. Turns out the whole regiment was a bogus cattle rustler outfit and our drovers had to fight it out with them to keep the herd. Very engaging show worth watching and see how they wound up fighting it out etc. Written by JP
