Johnny "the kid" McBane has made a name for himself in the back rooms of Chicago as the best bare-knuckle boxer in town. But then he refuses to throw a fight and must leave town in a hurry. Flat broke in a strange city, Johnny figures he's got nothing to lose by joining the army -- where he'll make good money and see the West for free. But when Johnny runs out on his crooked fight manager, he doesn't know he'll end up a private in Custer's cavalry, learning how to fight the Sioux Indians -- how to fight, this time, for his life.
