The Battle of Elderbush Gulch – 1913 (Entire Film)

With Mae Marsh, Lillian Gish and Robert Harron in an all star cast.

Two young girls on their way to visit their uncle in the unsettled west, fall in with a young married couple bound for the same destination. They have brought with them two dogs and as they are not allowed to keep them in the house, they are placed outside, where they escape into an Indian camp. The older girl goes out to look for the dogs and encounters the Indians. Her uncle comes on the scene and thinking her attacked, fires and kills the chief’s son. This happening fans into flame the smoldering spark of Indian hatred. A battle ensues, but finally the troops arrive and disperse the Indians.
