Young Gabe returns home, now a lieutenant in the Continental Army. He's captured by Tory Colonel Townes who has him whipped. Gabe still refuses to reveal the location of the Swamp Fox's hideout, even when facing a firing squad.

Though not exactly a western, "The Swamp Fox" aired in an era of TV westerns and floggings were quite common in this kind of programming. Thus young Tim Considine's flogging in "Tory Vengeance" occurs just six weeks after Ty Hardin was whipped in "Bronco" and just ten weeks before Alan Case was whipped in "The Deputy." See more
