The two men fight and become enemies. Demas returns to the fort and is instructed to put his men through a crash training program, after which they celebrate their first leave in Mule City and run into trouble with the town marshal and his henchmen. Demas and Sol then conspire to avenge their men. At an officers' ball on the eve of the campaign, Sol realizes that Lou is in love with Demas, but Lou tells him that Demas seems to have lost interest in her.

That night, after the Indians withdraw, Demas leads his reduced force to rejoin the regiment and finds that McCabe and his men, fighting the Indians on their own, have been massacred. He returns to the fort and to ... +
