Amazing how few people know of this TV series, and I was addicted to it as a teen in the 60s. Lloyd Bridges played a veteran of the Civil War, and the episodes were poignant because he never found peace even when helping people. And no, it wasn't like Chuck Connors in Branded - the stories were much more thoughtful and less physical. Rod Serling wrote the scripts, which I remember as being top notch and, in usual Serling style, thought provoking. What I particularly remember is the beautiful intro theme to the series - to this day, I can hear it and would love to own it. I've watched some of the episodes at the Museum of Radio and Television in NYC - unfortunately, they don't even have all of the episodes last I checked. Definitely an overlooked - and greatly underrated - classic TV Western.
