Director Antoine Fuqua brings his modern vision to a classic story in The Magnificent Seven. With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue, the desperate townspeople employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns. As they prepare the town for the violent showdown that they know is coming, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for more than money.
Sam Chisholm tells the Sheriff of Rose Creek to pass a message to Bartholomew Bogue: "Lincoln, like the President. Lincoln, Kansas". Lincoln, Kansas was founded in 1870, one year after Lincoln, New Mexico, where the Lincoln County War took place in 1878-1879. Several plot details mirror the range war, including a robber-baron exerting control over the town, the local sheriff being on the robber-baron's payroll, a group of gunfighters forming to fight the robber-baron (known as The Regulators in the Lincoln County War), the siege of the town (July 15-19 1878, known as the Battle of Lincoln), and a significant protagonist having the surname Chisholm (Cattle rancher John Chisholm in the Lincoln County War).
