about 20 miles out of town.

They came scrambling

out of the rock shooting.

We barely managed

to drive them off.

You did a good job.

- You the only passenger?

- Yes.

Your driver managed to

get in some good licks

before they got him.

They'll be storming

the town next.

No white man's life is

safe in Dakota anymore.

That's right.

There used to be soldiers

at the fort to protect us.

Now they're gone.

Can't even get an escort

for the stagecoach.

They're being put to better

use fighting rebels.

Well, I'd rather

they was fightin' Indians.

Drive the coach down

to Mr. Sherwood's, Charlie.

Tell him I'll pay

for Jim's funeral.

My name is Mike Daugherty.

I own the stage line.

Your name, sir?

Zachary Paige.

I'm here on a mission

from our President.

- From Mr. Lincoln?

- Yes.

I have a letter of introduction in

his own handwriting to Judge Baker.

I am Judge Baker.

How do you do, sir?

I have my credentials right

here from Mr. Lincoln.

Well, you see, friends?

My petition to the President

did carry some weight.

Sir, you are most welcome here.

And I extend my friendship

and full cooperation.

Thank you.

I'm gonna take quick advantage

of your offer, Judge.

I'd like an audience

with War Cloud,

the Sioux chief,

as soon as possible.

That can be arranged.

But those redskins are in

a scalping frame of mind.

I have authority to make any

treaty that'll satisfy them,

within reason, of course.

Uh, say now.

I'd be glad to take you out

to War Cloud, Mr. Paige.

Gimpy, I think Mike here

is the man for the job.

War Cloud has had

a warm feeling for him

ever since he learned to

speak the Sioux language.

You're elected, Mike.

War Cloud says he's the one man

in town whose word he'll take.

All right, I'll give it a try.

I can get you to him, but
