The famed raid on Lawrence, Kansas, in which over 400 innocent people lost their lives to a group of marauders is heavily fictionalized and cleaned up for this quickie western B film. Gordon plans to raid the town in order to get Union munitions for the Confederacy. Cochran is a

Confederate officer assigned to help plan the raid but discovers the ammunition has been moved. He tries to call off the raid and attack a wagon train instead but Gordon is too far gone to be swayed. He proceeds with his plan and it's up to Cochran to stop him. Gordon is killed but not before

Lawrence is under siege in some well-staged action sequences. The thrilling pace and Gordon's persistent sneer make this film work. Editing is tight, and although this is not great filmmaking, it does make exciting entertainment.
