On the final day of his command before retirement, a US Cavalry Captain (played by John Wayne in the performance of a lifetime) takes his troops out on a last patrol, witnesses the passing of the buffalo, watches young people fall in love and peacefully averts a war with the local Native American tribe! This Technicolor Western from the one and only director John Ford is a moving and thrilling look at our always debatable American History.
