General Sherman sends Captain Stewart to ask Earp to talk to Chief Joseph about the return of the gun. Earp sees little chance of success after discussing it with Mr. Cousin but the two leave to try. After being warned about a group of land grabbers who call themselves a militia from Idaho at an Army fort, the two find themselves taken captive by them. While the men argue over their future, Chief Joseph and his men rescue the two from the militia. Earp is brutally honest with Chief Joseph about the options open to the Nez Perce. Chief Joseph agrees to surrender the gun but on the way to the fort they encounter the militia. Earp doesn't trust them with good reason leading to a treacherous trip back to the fort.

  • General Sherman asks Earp to intervene with the Nez Perce tribe and Chief Joseph about reclaiming a Gatling gun stolen by Nez Perce. Earp and Mr. Cousin head west to contact Chief Joseph but a militia made up of land grabbers stop them.
