It's still a peace at risk
16 July 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Once again the peace is in jeopardy. Geronimo has attacked a ranch and killed a white man. In the white settlement Griffin is urging his fellows to take revenge before it is too late. Next a second ranch is attacked; Matt Newman warns Jeffords that Griffin and Deacon plan to burn down Tigre's Apache farm and kill everyone in revenge. Tigre was out hunting and his son was killed by Griffin. Tigre gives Jeffords a month to catch Griffin and see he is punished by the soldiers.

A trial is held and the lawyer for Griffin works the jury for all its fears of Indians and the past wars. Before the jury can be charged Jeffords is given some information. The judge allows Jeffords to speak and Jeffords points out the jury foreman was part of the group that raided Tigre's farm. The judge dismisses the jury and calls for a second trial. Jeffords decides this time to act as prosecutor and gives a rousing speech and Griffin is sentenced to death. However, Deacon decides to free Griffin but Apache braves see the would be ambush and warn Cochise and Lt. Winfield. Apaches capture Deacon and his men and hand them over to Lt. Winfield for punishment. Matt Newman is astonished that the Apache followed the white man's law.

Still early days for this series and the show's episodes follow familiar themes of revenge as both the Indian and the White Man try to find common ground. The series had to resonate with many viewers as WWII was still fresh in the minds of many soldiers and the Civil Rights movement was still in its nascent form.
