After the Civil War was over, a man called Bronco was the last man to return to the town from the war. He had been wounded and in a prisoner of war camp. His return surprises Redemption McNally who is his fiancé and her father Tom. Tom's son Freedom was in the war with Bronco and killed at the prison camp. When Jacob Stint sees Bronco, he tells everyone that Bronco was responsible for Freedom's death and was a traitor to the South. Upon hearing this news everyone in Bronco's hometown turns against him and want him to leave including Redemption. The only person who sticks with Bronco but with doubts is Ricky.
