Storyline

An Army general announces he is taking over the wagon train and requiring all members to act as soldiers in helping him rescue a trapped cavalry garrison of 120 men who are otherwise likely to be slaughtered by hostile Utes. Flint, temporarily in charge of the wagon train, has little choice but to agree to the general's demand, as much as he hates it and his passengers want him to fight back. Particularly upsetting to Flint is learning that the man who recommended this takeover was Jim Bridger, a legendary frontiersman and scout who mostly raised Flint and whom he idolized.

A disagreeable task

As we learned in an episode in an earlier season Flint McCullough was an orphan kid who was raised by legendary mountain man Jim Bridger. In one of the few episodes of the series where a real frontier figure was used, it befalls Jim Bridger to ask Flint McCullough for help to rescue some trapped soldiers.

What Bridger asks for General John Doucette demands as he commandeers the Train and drafts the settlers into the army. Naturally that does not sit well with Robert Horton.

This was one of the most far out episodes of the series and can't get a truly good rating from me. Karl Swenson plays Bridger and does well in the part. But I don't think any martinet general would try something like this.
