The second season opens with Johnny recounting his last days fighting the war
19 July 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Johnny Yuma at Appomattox" was the second season opener, allowing for Nick Adams' Johnny Yuma to relate the story of his final days fighting the Civil War. Johnny currently works in the print shop of McCune (J. Pat O'Malley, last of three), whose son was among the lives lost for the Confederacy, his young grandson Jimmy (Teddy Rooney) listening to tales told in bitterness, wanting to assassinate the visiting General Ulysses S. Grant (William Bryant, fourth of nine) for the death of his father. Johnny relates his own story of being at Appomattox at the time of the surrender of General Robert E. Lee (George Macready, last of two), he too guilty of hoping to kill Grant in retaliation for the many victims that fought for the South. He'd been held captive for a year in a Union prison camp before escaping and spending six months with Lee's army in northern Virginia, present on that fateful day of April 9 1865, when Lee surrendered to Grant. Being the kind of man who won't give up without a fight, Johnny refuses to yield despite the warnings from his friend Doug (Ed Nelson, third of five), who will be happy to head on home once the papers are signed. The pilot episode took place two years after the war's end, and watching Yuma still in full battle mode is somewhat jarring, but very effective in showing just how far the hotheaded Texan had come since. Creator/producer Andrew J. Fenady (as Union General Sheridan) makes his second and last appearance on the show, scripting for the fourth and final episode, while William Harlow was doing the second of nine episodes.
