Flint returns home to Fort Bridger to visit Jim Bridger who raised him. The appearance of a man from his time in the Confeerate Army brings back the past. He wanted to marry Jean Yates but because she was Morman her father objected. When two men came for supplies at the fort, they revealed they were in the Conderate Army and looking for volunteers. Flint being born in Virginia had been thinking about joining and decides to join them. Unknown to him, however, the group is acting as a guerrilla force to steal gold shipments and they take no prisoners. Not understanding what he has gotten into, Flint allows a prisoner to escape before being killed. The prisoner is tracked to the home of Jean and her parents. The commander orders the prisoner and family killed to preserve their anonymity. Flint is determined to exact revenge for their death and awaits the appearance of his old commander. However, the war and time have had an effect Flint did not expect. Written by Anonymous

A whole lot of questions
15 December 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In this episode of Wagon Train we learn something of the background of Flint McCullough. He was an orphan kid with parents that came from Virginia who were killed by Indians. After that he was raised by mountain men Jim Bridger who taught him the trade of scouting.

But for reasons I'm not understanding in this episode he feels an affinity for the Confederacy and when Everett Sloane comes along and reveals he's a Confederate colonel out west incognito, Robert Horton wants to join up.

What he's joined is a Quantrill like outfit and he's disillusioned. And he loses the love of his life in the process.

I would have thought that an episode devoted to a flashback of one of the show's stars would have been better done. Perhaps a two hour format like the one in the previous year showing Ward Bond's background would have been the answer. Speaking of answers were left with a whole lot of questions here.
