The Abolitionists is a Historical Western about a Manchu cavalry officer who ventures to gold rush era California to end shipment of Sharps rifles to China's Taiping rebels. He finds the gunrunners are a powerful cartel of Southern Secessionists and Chinese Tongs and forges an alliance with John Brown's Abolitionists, Mariano Vallejo's Californio Lancers, and Chinese coolies to take down the hated cartel.
