Maggie Hamilton (episode #3.26) has run away from the train. She has what we would now call “issues” with such a primitive lifestyle. And she’s not obedient to parental supervsion.

The Major sends McCullough out to find her and haul her back before she can get into trouble. Maggie leaves a piece of petticoat as a marker for what she assumes will be someone from the train. But instead she is captured by some bad hombres.

McCullough comes across their camp, tussles with the bad guys, rescues the girl. You know, a Flint day at the office. And what does the ungrateful Maggie do? She steals his horse and rides off, leaving him.

Once he catches up with her the fun starts. A war of wills between the petulant Margaret Hamilton and the implacable Flint McCullough.
