In Denver before the outbreak of the Civil War, North Carolina native Owen Pentecost (Robert Stack) tricks saloon owner Jumbo Means (Raymond Burr) into losing everything he owns -- including some valuable mining claims -- in a card game. As headstrong dressmaker Ann (Virginia Mayo) and bartender Boston (Ruth Roman) spar over Owen's affections, his fellow Southerners begin assembling their gold to fund the Confederate Army, as the town's Northerners form their own militia and prepare for war.
