Maj. John Singleton Mosby:
We took our men from Texas, Kentucky, Virginia / The mountains and the backwoods and plains. / We put them under orders - guerilla fighting orders / And what we lacked in numbers / We made up with speed and brains. / To the Rebs and Yankee strangers / They called us Mosby's Rangers. / Both North and South / They knew our fame. / The Gray Ghost is what they called me, / John Mosby is my name.

I have fond memories of this particular TV show from my youth. I think there may have been repeats in the next few years after wards but I have not seen any of the episodes since the early 60s. Is there any repository that might market this show? One commenter stated that he was looking to get all of the episodes. As another commenter noted, there was a lot of historical correctness in this show but the western scenes did leave a sore spot but 50 years ago, TV did not stray far from the coast. Tod Andrews, who portrayed Mosby, died quite young and I only remember seeing him in one other venue, a navy officer in one of those WWII wide screen battles. I don't remember which one, but IMDb has it in his biography. As another commenter made a statement, Mosby definitely was on Grant's "kill on sight" list. He eventually resettled into Washington, DC after the war and resumed his law practice there.
