Early in the Civil War, many states in the far West hadn't made up their minds which way to jump: particularly in certain wealthy mining areas, the scale could be tipped one way or the other. What local men of wealth and influence did was of prime importance. Moreover, so long as a territory remained neutral, unscrupulous characters could exploit the situation. When this exploitation included the shipment of arms, then the army had good cause to investigate- but they could not do so openly. Which is how Lt. Tracy Dalton found himself riding into Gold Hill, Oregon, disguised as a wealthy mining investment engineer- with a commitment to lick a whole state-load of Southern sympathizers if necessary.
