In another John Wayne film directed by John Ford, a large Union Cavalry unit is sent into Confederate territory on a sabotage mission to destroy a railroad and supply depot. The film is historical fiction based on the missions of Col. Benjamin Grierson and the Battle of Newton's Station, which led to the Confederacy's defeat in Vicksburg.
