Call in to speak with the host
SAMUEL J. WINCHESTER is an escaped convict, wanted by the law for murder, but once he was an officer and a gentleman.
Winchester was an 1831 graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point NY. Graduating at the top of his class as an engineer, he worked for ten years building roads, bridges and fortifications.
He was engaged to marry, EMMALINE ADELMAN, the daughter of COL. AUBREY ADELMAN. She is the apple of her father’s eye and of Sam’s as well.
Sam thought he had it all.
Then in 1841 without warning he was placed under arrest and quickly convicted of the murder of a family on the raw frontier of the Republic of Texas. He was sent to a succession of prisons, the last being Castillo de San Marcos at St. Augustine, FL where conditions were brutal. Inmates were fed slop, whipped or beaten often. At night they were chained to the floor and given cotton pallets instead of beds.
Escape was thought to be impossible.
But Sam did manage to escape after ten years of confinement.
He took his chains with him, and carries them in his saddlebags. He will not rest until he has found those responsible for his fall from grace.
He intends to batter them with the length of chain, each and every one of them, however many there might be.
