In 1875, a peace treaty between the United States and the Sioux Nation brings calm to the Black Hills of the Dakota Territory. However, a rumor about gold in the hills starts a gold-rush. Many settlers and prospectors invade the Black Hills in violation of the peace treaty. The Army tries its best to keep the gold-rushers out of the Sioux lands in order to avoid renewed confrontations between the Sioux and the Whites. A small fort with a small garrison is entrusted with policing the region. Captain Webb Calhoun is especially strict about keeping the gold seekers out of the Indian lands. This earns him the enmity of the settlers and the gold-rushers. Often times, Calhoun's men get into fist fights with the prospectors in the local saloon. The saloon owner, Ira Jordan, encourages gold-digging on Sioux lands. He figures that sooner or later, the Sioux will attack the train wagons carrying settlers and gold-rushers and trigger a new war between the Sioux and the USA. With the Sioux killed...

Attention to historical detail
24 December 2004 | by silkythegoatSee all my reviews

At first I didn't think much, but as the plot became interesting I decided to stick with it. While I'm far from an expert on the Old West, the commands issued to the troopers seem real. What was more impressive was the detail of the soldiers loading and firing their single shot carbines. That was a nice touch. However, the use of colt pistols seemed wrong - I believe they would have Navy revolvers in the cavalry. I've read that soldiers were on the low end of the social hierarchy in the West and this was represented in the townspeople's attitudes, although in this case they had a specific reason. As far as the acting, I guess I have a soft spot for Forrest Tucker (maybe from watching F-Troop as a kid, as horrible as it was in retrospect.) Chill Wills was a hoot! I liked the way he yelled the commands - took you by surprise. So, all in all not a great film, by any stretch of the imagination, it was worth watching. And seeing the track record of the writer that's not surprising.
