The Story

Who are these two men? Why are they dueling? What is at stake? Who are the onlookers in the background? And most importantly – who will live? We follow Eli and Edward’s journey from the Midwest to California with the hopes of finding love and prosperity.

Eli

Eli

Eli loved Cora with all his being; but sometimes a happy ending just isn’t in the cards. Politics, family tensions, and cold blooded murder came between them and their love. Eli traveled to the ends of the earth to find Cora again, but when he arrived, he realized everything had changed. His future and his family all came down to one moment at dawn when he raised a pistol.

Edward

Edward

Being wealthy in the 1830’s had its drawbacks. The pressure for a good profession and starting a family was enough to lead a man to the brink of insanity. When Edward couldn’t take it any longer, he left and headed west in search of his calling. Neither the journey nor the arrival went as expected. He never thought he would raise his pistol that morning.

The Watchers

Watching

No duel is complete without the spectators and everyone has a story to tell. The town physician stood ready, but willing to save neither shooter. The town drunk was there, standing right in the middle, but even he wasn’t about to get between these dueling pistols.
