Summary
  • Set in pre-Civil War Lawrence, Kansas where tensions about slavery ran high, this film tells a fictionalized version of the story of the raider William Clarke Quantrill. Bob Seton runs for Federal Marshall of Kansas and defeats William Cantrell. Cantrell responds by stealing Seton's girl and manipulating her into marrying him. Seton later exposes Cantrell and his band of guerillas who have been raiding both Union and Confederate lines
  • Finding men has never been a problem for city girl Molly Trousdale - finding the right man is another matter. And women have never been a problem for cowboy bachelor Duke Hutkins - until they want to marry him
