Colton rides onto a farm one day looking for work. The farm belongs to Colonel and Mrs. John Phelps. The woman is bitter. It seems she is confused about a causality of war, and she shows Colton the object of her confusion - her husband. The Colonel was returned to her after the war in a dazed state. All he could do was sit in a chair. He stared. She had to do everything for him. She didn't understand where his wound was or why he wasn't getting any better. Seeing the Colonel made up Colton's mind. He had a job to do there, and he would stay and do it. Then one day in town, Charlie Gibbons started talking dirty about Colton and Mrs. Phelps. Colton punched Gibbons, and Doc assured him that Gibbons would come after him. Written by Michelle
