Major Adams runs into a former boxing champ and Civil War comrade Willy Moran in Kansas City who has become a drunk. One of wagons needs a second driver so when faced with being dropped from the wagon train, the owner hires Willy as his backup driver. Willy is befriended by Mary Palmer over the objections of her uncle and has an extended streak of sobriety. However, the man he works for in reality is part of an outlaw gang who wants to steal a load of powder and ammo on the train. The owner and his partner are forced to discredit Willy when he stumbles into their plan. Adams believes Willy has gone back to drinking but when the train is attacked Willy is sober and takes decisive action to stop the attackers. Written by
