In 1863 during the end of the Civil War a band of Southern soldiers with the aid of an Indian tribe try to go to Mexico and elicit help from Emperor Maximilian. The soldiers must pass through a narrow pass near at the Texas border defended by Union soldiers stationed at Ft. Worth. The Southern soldiers and Chief Wild Horse devise a plan where the Indians will attack the neighboring town of Chesapeake and when the Union soldiers leave to aid the settlers the Southerners will attack Ft. Worth. Just in time to time to stop a massacre the Southerners are discovered by the Seventh Cavalry.


  1. Got the Spanish DVD (Divisa). Will have to give it a try one of these days.

  2. I have it too, and I think the same :)

  3. Ida Galli is Priscilla Steele here and ... Evelyn Stewart in others european westerns ?

  4. Yes that's correct. Here are the names she acted under: Ida Galli, Ina Galli, Deborah Heston, Isli Oberon, Priscilla Steele. Evelyn Steward, Eveline Stewart, Evelyn Stewart. Sometimes these actors/actresses were cedited with different names in different releases of the same film and then again on video releases which makes it very confusing at times to try and figure out who is who.

  5. Thank you , Tom !
    Great work !
