TIMPO WILD WEST OUTPOST
Catalogue Number 257
Out on the plains the soldiers have built a stockade outpost. It's a good deal smaller than their Fort Worth. Doesn't have any buildings, they just use it for storing supplies for cavalry patrols.
Once in a while the Injuns they are supposed to be pacifying get a mite riled about their land being stolen and promises being broken by the Great White Chief and such-like.
Anyways, you know how it goes. The sergeant says he doesn't like it on account of it being too quiet. Then he gets an Injun arrow in his chest and all hell breaks loose. By this time of course the sergeant is probably past caring.
