The Raiders is a wild western tale of a group of ranchers' quest to have a railroad extended into their state. Having been reduced to poverty after losing the Civil War, former Confederate colonel John G. McElroy (Brian Keith), now a struggling rancher, looks to help generate income for his destitute home state of Texas. Together with a group of six other ranchers, McElroy leads their herds of cattle to the closest rail head, which is all the way in Hays City, Kansas. But the hopeful ranchers run into trouble from carpet baggers and the like when they hit the territory of Oklahoma, and they never make it. Their struggles, however, inspire a determined McElroy to continue the journey all the way Hays City, demanding a railroad be built to connect to their Texan town. But when Wild Bill Hickok (Robert Culp), Buffalo Bill (Jim McMullen) Calamity Jane (Judi Meredith) get involved in this fight, the southern fighter will need all the help he can get. Herschel Daugherty directs this classic western romp.moreless
