It’s now 1869. Jake and Jerrod Wilson have done very well for themselves after striking gold in California. But troubling news arrives from back home in New York, where their banker and family friend Mr. Quail sends word that a gang led by William “Boss” Tweed has overrun Brooklyn. And so, armed with evidence that should send Tweed to prison for life, Jake and Jerrod decide to sell their mine and travel home on the newly constructed Transcontinental Railroad. But the Boss has heard they are coming and plans to stop them from ever returning.
