It’s the 1920’s, Pancho Villa is gone, and Mexico is just settling into a new, post-revolution form of democratic government.
Vatican influence over the psyche of the country remains an enemy.
Back in the USA, one group of Denver radical evangelicals is waging a powerful domestic assault against Catholic immigration and the sweeping spread of Catholicism. With KKK backing, Masonic Order money, and US government approved assistance, these fanatics decide anti-Catholic political conditions in Mexico are ripe to take their fight down there.
They don’t need to search any further south than Trinidad, Colorado to find the man for the job.
Charlie Coates, who had organized the John D. Rockefeller strikebreaking force during the infamous Colorado Coalfield Wars, was contracted to put together the group of mercenaries needed to foment religious wars south of the border.

Abe and Matt are in it for big money and adventure, but when the well-armed and handsomely financed rebel outfit begins organizing the Catholic faithful of Zacatecas state to rebel, an amazing transformation takes place.
