The Conquering Horde is a remake of the 1924 western epic North of 36, using generous amounts of stock footage from the original. The story takes place in post-Civil War Texas, where the local cattlemen are suffering from their inability to get their livestock to market. Dan McMasters, a Yankee war hero, is sent from Washington to help set up a safe and efficient passageway for the cattle drovers — thereby earning himself the enmity of the local land barons who’ve been charging the cattlemen exorbitant fees to trek across their land. A romantic subplot involves McMasters and Yank-hating rancher Taizie Lockhart.
