Storyline

Flint is scouting ahead when he comes on buzzards and an apparent Indian massacre of a wagon. He spots Gabe Billings in the rocks with a gun on him as Gabe's father Amos Billings comes out. They eventually back down and each disarm. Amos is sporting a Union blue hat with a Confederate gray coat. He admits to being a "galvanized" Yankee - a Confederate POW who agreed to join the Union Army on the frontier against the Indians for his freedom. He says he has opened a trading post and a new road that would save the wagon train a week or more and is safer in terms of Indians. Flint is against it but agrees to take them back to the train to talk to Chris. Chris despite pleas from members of the train agrees with Flint. However, he agrees to send Flint to scout the supposed new route while the train waits for three days. Flint finds things are not as they seem after he runs into a woman trying to escape her husband.
