Plot Summary
When a band of Confederate servicemen escapes from a Union stockade, they make their way to the safe haven of Canada, but have no intention of living out their remaining days in peace. Led by Maj. Neal Benton (Van Heflin), the fugitives plan to raid a small town in Vermont as payback for the North's destruction of the South. Performing reconnaissance, Benton becomes familiar with the town's layout, and also develops a relationship with a widow (Anne Bancroft) and her son (Tommy Rettig).
