Colorado, time of the Civil War: Someone is trying to undermine the war efforts of the Union by regularly robbing the army payrolls, selling weapons by the dozen to the local Indians and trying to destroy the morele of the soldiers in general, so General Grant (Joseph Crehan) sends Pinkerton detective Jerry Burke (Roy Rogers) and his sidekick Gabby (Gabby Hayes) to investigate.

Even on the way to Denver, Burke's stagecoach, which is also carrying an army payroll, is robbed, but Burke, who has obviously recognized the robber, shoots at him and makes him lose the payroll - but get away only slightly wounded. Later, at the fort, the robber is revealed to be Burke's brother Don (Milburn Stone), a sergeant in the Northern army, but Burke decides to let him off easy until he can verify that he is indeed behind sabotaging the Union efforts ... unfortunately such evidence is soon been found, and for Burke it's now doubly tragic to arrest his brother b ecause he has just met his bride-to-be Lylah (Pauline Moore) and begun to like her ...

Don however manages to escape his arrest, and after being dishonoured by the army, he decides to throw in with Indian commissioneer Macklin (Arthur Loft) and his group of war-profiteers who are in the process of instigating an indian uprising.

In his efforts, Don proves much more effective and ruthles than the rest of the bunch and the uprising becomes a smashing success, however, when he finds his brother Burke wounded in an indian ambush, he gets him to safety and sees to it that he gets proper treatment.

Eventually though the odds turn against Don, especially when he kidnaps Lylah whom he really loves, and in the end, Burke and his gang have him arrested as the leader of the traitors. On the way to his trial, which will surely end with conviction and execution, Don asks his borther for one last favour: to not have him go to the gallows but have him shot when attempting to escape - which of cours happens eventually ...

In the end, Burke gets his brother's fiancee Lylah for himself ...

 

Not really a good Western, not even an outstanding B-Western, but for a Roy Rogers-Western - which was always a highly formulaic series - this one is pretty decent features a few interesting plot elements and keeps the singing - which often does interrupt the film rather than enrichen it - down to one song.
