His level best to stop a war
3 June 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This Wagon Train story has Flint McCullough visiting an army post where he spent part of his time during his years as an orphan youth growing up. When he arrives he notes a change in the behavior of the post commander John Howard. His wife was recently killed by Indians and he holds James Best who is of mixed race parentage and current Comanche chief responsible. He's even holding Jacqueline DeWit who is Best's mother as a prisoner.

Robert Horton is in a sticky situation since he knows all parties and does his level best to stop a war.

Howard as a driven man bordering on insanity brought on by grief is who you'll remember from this Wagon Train episode.
