Does anyone remember a weekly western TV show from the 60s with different stories each week that had a dramatization of the 1866 Fetterman massacre? William J. Fetterman had been an officer in the 18th US Infantry and lend an 80 man Cav/Inf party into 2000 Indians. I can't find the character name in the IMDB to find the show.

Thanks man, that's the one. I tried searching Fetterman on the site and it didn't come up, but there it is. 1966! I was curious if there was a song about the real Fetterman as in the TV show. "If his spurs don't jingle with a ring-ding ding..." Since he was Infantry in the Civil War, probably not.
