• Short Summary

    Mock up of attack by Native Americans on a Wild West Wagon train.

  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown

    Title reads: "Indians Attack Covered Wagons. Washington - Paleface train of pioneers meets perils of plains on trek across District of Colombia."

    Washington DC, United States of America.

    Mock up of train of covered wagons as used in the Wild West. The reconstruction is spoilt slightly by seeing motor cars in the background.

    Intertitle reads: "Making war whoopee!"

    Various shots of the wagons pulled into a circle and being fired upon by men on horses dressed as "Red Indians" (Native Americans / American Indians). Again the reconstruction is spoilt by seeing raised seating in the background.

    Intertitle reads: "Saved - by the President's Cavalry".

    Men dressed as soldiers of the US Cavalry ride onto the scene to see off the attacking forces.
