Gunfight in Abilene (1967)


The Story:

It's a messy Civil War scene. Major Cal Wayne and his men are on patrol. The
confederate troops have been boxed in by the Yankees for 3 days. They have had
no sleep and are running out of supplies. Heartless snipers are killing Cal's men one
by one until he has only 5 left. As Cal goes alone to a quiet area in Thompson's Woods,
he hears someone rustle in the bushes. He turns and shoots, only to find out he has
fatally injured his best friend, Dave Evers.


Cal hurriedly carries his dying friend to safety and suddenly the snipers hit him too.


Cal is taken to a prison hospital and then a prison camp. He is traumatized by what
he has done to Dave. Cal cannot tell anyone the truth about the incident. He is
guilt-ridden and vows to never fire a gun again. As he lay in the Prison camp, word
comes that the war is over. Instead of happiness, Cal feels nothing but pain and
worry. He knows when he goes home to Abilene, Kansas, he must face his best
friend's brother, Grant Evers.
