Rowdy, Wishbone, and Mushy stop in Calvin for supplies where they and the local men are smitten with the beautiful Abigail Fletcher. She owns the Silver Slipper "Salon" so before leaving town they decide to stop by the saloon for a drink. At the bar they spot a photograph of Gil Favor in uniform with a dedication to his bravery and death in the war. The bartender informs them that Abigail is his widow. After telling Favor at camp, he decides to go to town to see this for himself. True enough, he recognizes the picture from a wedding where he was best man followed and Abigail who faints. She confides to Favor that after the war she and her husband, who had lost everything, traveled West, but had even worse luck - her working in saloons and her husband resorting to crime and being lynched for murder. So she moved on and pretended to be war-hero Favor's widow. Upon hearing this and feeling protective, Favor pretends to be her long-thought dead husband who had been suffering from amnesia....
