Brief Synopsis

Even though Marshal Frank Patch has kept the peace in Cottonwood Springs for over twenty years, he is now the laughing stock of the town liberals who want some new blood in the Marshall's Office. When Patch shoots the drunken Luke Mills in self-defense they get the excuse they had been waiting for.
