A bushwhacking attempt on Jess Harper by Ned Billings reveals the wreckage of a Union gold wagon stolen by Confederate raiders and opens old wounds for Slim Sherman when accusations against his father helping the rebels are resurrected. Jess took Ned's body to Sheriff Cory who contacted the Army. They send Maj. John Ellis and Sgt. Nolan to investigate. During the war the Confederates stole $60,000 from the Union. Slim's father was involved but he never told Slim how. Slim and Jess set out with Maj. John Ellis and Sgt. Nolan. Nolan notices they are being followed. It turns out to be James Courtland, the officer accused of helping the rebels steal the gold wagons, and his son Will. They hope to find the lost convoy and prove his father was innocent of helping the Confederacy. They aren't the only one's interested in the lost gold convoy, there are others that will stop at nothing to get the gold, including the real Yankee traitor that helped steal the gold.
