In 1863 the American Civil War still rages. In Missouri, a Southern sympathizing state occupied by Union soldiers, the local residents have formed armed gangs to defend themselves from the frequent criminal acts of the Union Soldiers. The leader of one of these gangs, Butch of the town of Springfield saves two young ranch hands, Clell and Josh when they are attacked by Union troops stealing their horses. Although offered the chance to join his gang, Clell and Josh return to the ranch but later, Union troops lead by Captain Dan Clifford attack the ranch. Clell protests and is killed along with his wife Lizzy, when Josh discovers there murders he joins up with Butch and his gang, to track down the killers and in doing so becomes an outlaw. Two years later, at the end of the war Clifford travels to the ranch aiming to marry the owner's daughter and take it for himself, but when Josh returns and kidnaps her, Clifford and his soldiers set out in pursuit across the Southern states.
