A U.S. Marshal ends up in the last place he should be in this Ralph Compton western...

Deputy U.S. Marshal Matt Battles is being blackmailed--by President Chester A. Arthur. The Commander-in-Chief needs someone to discover why Hatfield J. Warful is gathering every notorious gunslinger in the west at his home in Slaughter Canyon. Thanks to a falsified news report planted by the Secret Service, Battles is now wanted for robbery and murder, leaving him no choice but to infiltrate Warful's gang by posing as an outlaw on the run.

But Warful's trigger-happy gunfighters share some unpleasant history with the supposed ex-Marshal, and don't care which side of the law he's on. And if Battles didn't have enough worries being targeted by both lawman and outlaw alike, failing his mission could result in a second Civil War...
