Based on actual events. In 1879, 140 soldiers under the command of Major T.T. Thornburg left the Wyoming Territory for the White River Agency in the heart of the Ute Reservation. Their mission: to protect a fanatical U.S. Indian Agent determined to "civilize" the Ute tribes. As the troops passed the Shining Mountains in the Rockies, they were plunged into a horrific battle against 300 Ute warriors, which inspired an uprising at the White River Agency.
