The year is 1853 and Ralph Hartsook arrives in the Indiana town of Flat Creek to teach school. He boards with the Means family and becomes fast friends with Bud Means and falls in love with Hannah Thompson, an orphan who is "bound out" (basically, handed over as slave labor) to Old Miss Means. There have been a number of robberies in the little village and the thieves have cast suspicion on Pearson, an old veteran. Because Hartsook helps Pearson out, he is believed to be the leader of the robbers and a mob threatens to lynch him. 61 Minutes.
