In the aftermath of the American Civil War, a gang of vanquished Confederate veterans known as the Quantrill Raiders are roaming the West branded as outlaws by the new Yankee government. The gang includes the Younger and James brothers, and has refused to lay down their arms after the Civil War peace agreement. But when Major Jefferson Clanton (Robert Ryan) surrounds the outlaws with his overwhelming cavalry forces, Bob Younger (Jack Buetel) reluctantly accepts Clanton’s offer to surrender and be escorted to camp to swear allegiance to the new government in return for a pardon for their crimes.
However, Robert Preston (Matthew Fowler), a greedy private detective carpetbagger decides that his agency wants to collect the bounty on the outlaws’ heads and a deadly gunfight ensues when one of Preston’s men is shot dead by Clanton and the Raiders break free to ride as the Badmen again…
