Amnesty
20 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wonder how successful Governor Wallace's amnesty was. I wonder if the ending in this episode was actually typical to how this sort of thing actually ended. Though I seriously doubt there were too many 'good' marshal's giving gunfighters accused of murder a deputy's badge, I'm sure some did. After all, a gunfighter would do well during a range war or a bank robbery unless they suddenly decide to turn on their employee.

Chris Alcaide is another great bad guy.

Interestingly, Governor Lou Wallace would later have his "Ben Hur" book published. He was an interesting guy!
