The following written prologue appears in the onscreen credits: "During the Civil War, Southern sympathizers made desperate efforts to aid the Confederacy by inciting Indian uprisings against defenseless towns along the Western frontier. The objective was to force large withdrawals of Northern troops from the main battlefronts, leaving them more vulnerable to Southern attack. This is the story of one such attempt that took place in Dakota territory in the year 1864."
