In the 19th century, two famous outlaws come to St. Roch, Louisiana - Nighthawk and Cinnamon. Nighthawk meets James Craddock in a saloon and learns that Cyrus Evans, an ex-slave is going to be tried for the murder of his former owner Bois Garvey. Evans is innocent however, and some suspect that Matilda Dunney, Garvey's niece may have killed him because he left his estate to Cyrus Evans. Matilda has gathered a lynch mob together ready to hang Evans on their own.
Nighthawk and Cinnamon share a passionate evening together before deciding to bust Cyrus out of prison. They break him free and load him onto a wagon. Nighthawk shoots his way to freedom and they take Cyrus to the Garvey estate. Evans turns the estate into the Stonechat Museum.
