Ronald Reagan Appears as Captain Vance Britten in "The Last Outpost"

In 1862, Union forces drive the Confederate Army of the Southwest into Texas, a development that renders the Santa Fe Trail a supply line to the Union's "bleeding troops." Hindering the delivery of the supplies, however, is a brash, cigar-smoking rebel captain named Vance Britton, who with his crack troop of Texas dragoons captures most of the Union wagons before they are able to reach Fort Point.
