Storyline

McCord is picked up by a group of soldiers who say they will try him not only for cowardice in the deadly Indian raid that killed everyone but him, but for complicity in planning it! However, the action is a ruse set up by President Ulysses S. Grant himself (Grant and McCord's father are longtime Army buddies and Grant believes in McCord). The object is to fool a fellow prisoner, a treasury agent for the long-gone Confederate government, into revealing the location of some $300,000 in gold bullion which he secreted and which the national government desperately needs to avert a financial panic. Trouble ensues when some of the soldiers also find out about the gold and plan to steal it (and kill the witnesses) after it is dug up. Written by Peter Harris

Quotes

Major Meade: I want to thank you again... for myself, for the army, and for the United States treasury.
Jason McCord: Well, I guess the gold is important, but smashing an outfit like the Knights of Liberty may do a lot more good in the long run. You know, men like that don't really threaten us. They certainly do dirty us.
Major Meade: Well, sometimes we do a little dirtying ourselves... as in your case. I'll be reporting to President Grant. Any message?
Jason McCord: Yes. Tell him it took seven years, but we finally won the Battle of Cemetery Ridge

Knights of Liberty
7 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

Out of curiosity, I looked this up in Wikipedia, and from what I gathered, it was a group formed in 1846 for the purpose of abolishing slavery. I doubt this had anything to do with the other. Was this made up for the purpose of this show?

It's interesting how many people in the army believe Jason is innocent, yet nobody seems to do anything about it. Granted, Jason wants it that way in order to protect an "old friend," but still...By the way, we don't hear anything about that story line anymore. Now it's just the army cheated him...Funny how the story's changed from Season 1 to Season 2.
