Synopsis

The initial scenes, in Washington, depict important political and military persons of the Civil War period. In the aftermath, renowned gunfighter Wild Bill Hickok retires to Dodge City, where he puts aside his weapons and becomes a card dealer. Hickok comes forward when the local lawmen ask him to help rid Dodge City of its lawless elements; he visits General Custer to retrieve his sword, thus symbolizing his return to active life; but McQueen, the gang's leader, escapes. Hickok hunts him down and shoots him, then leaves Dodge City with a broken heart--he fell in love with a woman already married.
