Bob Nylen as William Stewart, first U. S. Senator from Nevada and author of the Fifteenth Amendment. Ron Roberts as Roswell Colcord, seventh governor of Nevada and first Nevada governor to support Women’s Suffrage. And Myron Freedman as John Millain, convicted murderer of Virginia City’s most famous prostitute, Julia Bulette.
