Four Faces West

Four Faces West is a 1948 Western film starring Joel McCrea, his real-life wife Frances Dee, Charles Bickford. It is based on the novel Pasó por aquí by Eugene Manlove Rhodes, its plot concerns a down-on-his-luck cowboy. For its genre the film is unusual in that not a single shot is fired. Ross McEwen robs a bank in the New Mexico town of Santa Maria, taking the banker Frenger with him letting him go a few miles away, minus boots but with an I. O. U. for the $2000 he has taken. When he gets back to town, Frenger offers a reward of $3000, alive. Pat Garrett, the new marshal, warns the bounty hunters against unnecessary shooting in the back. McEwen is bitten by a rattlesnake before he can board a train, where he is helped by a passenger, nurse Fay Hollister; the posse stop the train and search it, but quick thinking on McEwen's part and a vague description of the robber save the wanted man. However, Monte Marquez, a gambler passenger and overhears enough to figure out what McEwen has done; the train tracks are washed out near Albuquerque, so the small group goes off alone via a route used to deliver mail.

Fay finds out a posse from Santa Maria is after a wanted man and recalls, where McEwen came on board. But he and she have developed an attraction to each other; when they reach an Alamogordo saloon that Marquez's cousins run, a cattleman named Burnett is willing to take on McEwen as a hired hand. Garrett and deputy Clint Waters come to town, so McEwen must leave, but offers her an engagement ring. Fay ends up separated and captured by Garrett's men. After crossing the desert with difficulty, McEwen comes across a Mexican rancher named Florencio, whose family is ill, he starts a fire to signal the lawmen, needing their assistance. Marquez gets there along with Garrett and Fay, but because Florencio is another relative of his, pretends that McEwen is a total stranger. Garrett is not fooled, McEwen is convinced to turn himself in, the marshal promising to vouch for his good deed.

202nd Pennsylvania Infantry Regiment

The 202nd Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry was an infantry regiment of the Union Army in the American Civil War. Raised in the Harrisburg area and the Coal Region in August and September 1864, the regiment was sent to the Manassas Gap Railroad to guard it against the attacks of Confederate partisan rangers led by John Mosby. Following the Union victory at Battle of Cedar Creek, the regiment helped break up the now unneeded railroad and moved to Alexandria to guard the railroad there. After the end of the war, the regiment served in the Coal Region to suppress labor unrest, was mustered out in mid-1865; the 202nd Pennsylvania was raised in the Harrisburg area and the Coal Region beginning in early August 1864 for a one-year term in response to President Abraham Lincoln's call for 500,000 men. It was organized under the command of Colonel Charles Albright, a lawyer and former colonel of the 132nd Pennsylvania, at Camp Curtin near Harrisburg on 3 September; the companies were recruited as follows: A in Carbon County, B in Juniata County, C in Adams County, D in Northumberland and Cumberland Counties, E in Lehigh County, F in Northampton County, G and H in Cumberland County, I in Union County, K in Huntingdon County.

Although some of its officers and men were veterans, most had little military experience. The regiment was sent to Camp Couch near Chambersburg in the Department of the Susquehanna for training on 10 September, began an exercise march of three days on 23 September. While the regiment was at Camp Couch, Albright was sent to Columbia County to collect witnesses against arrested draft evaders who participated in the Fishing Creek Confederacy; the regiment was sent via Washington, D. C. to Alexandria on 29 September, after its arrival took positions guarding the Manassas Gap Railroad from Thoroughfare Gap to Rectortown, part of the District of Alexandria in XXII Corps. The vital Manassas Gap Railroad transported supplies to the Army of the Shenandoah, as a result was attacked by Confederate partisan rangers led by John Mosby; the regiment fought in skirmishes against the Mosby men at Salem on 8 and 16 October, suffering several casualties although inflicting losses on and driving off the Confederate forces.

A train was derailed while moving at full speed by the guerrillas on 10 October, killing four to five and wounding an estimated twenty, after which they fired upon the survivors. In response, Albright ordered every building within a mile burned, forced Confederate sympathizers to accompany each train, preventing further attacks. After the Union victory in the Shenandoah at Cedar Creek, the railroad was no longer necessary, the regiment helped remove the ties and rails. Following the completion of the rail destruction, the 202nd returned to Alexandria, guarding the Orange and Alexandria Railroad from Bull Run to Alexandria, headquartered at Fairfax Station. There, it became part of the 1st Separate Brigade of XXII Corps; the soldiers of the regiment escorted woodmen felling timber for the construction of four large fortifications near Fairfax Station and details transporting timber for the needs of the army. In a New Year's greeting for 1865 sent to the regiment by brigade commander General William Gamble, he complimented the brigade, writing "You have a good regiment, I am glad to know the right kind of a Colonel is at the head of it."

After the end of the war, in late May, the 202nd was relocated to Philadelphia and was sent to the Coal Region to suppress a strike by miners of the New York and Schuylkill Coal Company. It arrived in the coal center of Mauch Chunk on 29 May; the regimental headquarters was located at Tamaqua and it was divided into detachments in the region, whose District of Lehigh was placed under the command of Albright. The coal mine operators helped determine detachment locations, including one sent to Forestville on 24 June. Regular patrols between Forestville and the mines at Swatara, New Mines, Heckscherville by the 202nd Pennsylvania intimidated the strikers into reducing their demands, ended the strike entirely. Company A moved to Pittsburgh in early July, after which the regiment concentrated at Harrisburg near the end of the month, before it was mustered out on 3 August. During its service, the regiment suffered a total of 36 deaths: three enlisted men killed and 33 died of disease.
