Summary: Set in the rugged Arizona Territory of 1879, Captain Jeff Stanton, played by Audie Murphy is a Union Calvary officer who is charged with trying to force the Indians back to their reservation. Apaches have been slipping out of their reservation and attacking settlers, farmers, and prospectors who have invaded the Indian territory. The white folks have responded by hunting down, torturing, and killing the Indians. Captain Stanton sees the injustice to the Indians and tries to help them. He captures Red Hawk, the son of an Apache chief, and uses him as a bargaining chip to successfully negotiate a truce. Unfortunately, Stanton is efforts are destroyed by a higher ranking colonel who captures Red Cloud and moves him to a Texas reservation. Stanton attempts to resign feeling as if his word to the Indians has now been broken. However, Red Hawk and and his half-Indian fiancée feel differently. Stanton remains in the cavalry to help bring about a better outcome.
