In 1753, Colonel George Washington (James Seay) and frontiersman Christopher Gist (John Ridgely) are proudly introducing their protege, Delaware Indian Prince Hannoc (Jon Hall) to Williamsburg, Virginia society. French spy Elizabeth Leeds (Mary Castle) romances Hannoc, hoping to swing the Delawares to the French side in the impending colonial war. Hannoc saves Washington and his men from a French trap during a peace mission. When Hannoc's father, Chief Shingiss (Pedro de Cordoba), comes to Williamsburg to sign a mutual defense pact with the British, he is murdered by French spies. Hannoc and Indian maiden Morna (Sherry Moreland) unmask Miss Leeds as a spy just as war breaks out, with Washington and his troops besieged at Fort Necessity.
