The wagon train has a decorated Civil War veteran, Nels Stack, who has become a pacifist. He has several wagons in the train and frequently clashes with others in the train who were on the Rebel side of the war and who don't understand his unwillingness to fight. They spot smoke from a burned wagon. They find a young woman who survived but her parents and brother were killed. The train finds itself stopped by a low river when they can't find a crossing and Flint is away looking for the Army to help. Nels loses a cow to the Indians and finds an old warrior left to die along the dead cow. He brings the warrior back to camp against the objections of the others and advice of the Major. He feeds the warrior and after a nasty fight with his main nemesis on the train Nels frees the warrior with a horse and food. Just before the train is attacked by Indians the warrior shows them a safe path across the river allowing the wagon train to escape. Written by

Gettin' used to 'em can take too long. You can be dead by then.
