Matt opens strolling thru boot hill with one grave marked "1882", yet the story is set no later than 1876, the year of Custer's last stand. It may not be a goof because the boot hill musings never have had anything to do with the stories and could represent Matt's reflections years later. See more »
Matt has some info that should have been past on to Fort Lincoln.
In this episode, that takes place right before the battle of Little Big Horn, we have an Army deserter named Joe Trimble that makes his way to the area around Dodge. Matt and Chester meet the man in civilian clothes out in the prairie with five horses in tow that has the mark of Gramby's ranch. When the Marshal asks about the horses he gets curt answers from Joe which makes Matt believe something is wrong. They led Joe and the horses to Gramby's house where they find him beaten to death. Matt arrest Joe for the murder. Matt is set to take Joe for trial in Hay City when an army Major comes into Dodge looking for a deserter. Just so happens that Matt has him in jail. When jury fails to convict Joe for the crime it appears that he has escape justice. But the Army may have something planned. An unique episode where Matt felt like justice was not served. But the show had the interest to keep the viewer's attention as we find a surprising ironic situation at the end of the episode. Good Watch.
