Synopsis for "The Man in the Black Stetson!"Edit

The Rawhide Kid comes across a man named Anson wearing a unique black stetson on the trail about to be bushwacked by a pair of gunmen and stops them. The two men then claim that they mistook the rider for someone else. The man notes that this is the second time he was attacked by someone and joins the Rawhide Kid in bringing the shooters to the jail in Shotgun City. While waiting for the trail, the Rawhide Kid invites Anson to come stay at the cabin he shares with his young ward Randy Clayton. Randy immediately takes to Mr. Anson, liking the stories he has to tell.

When Randy is sent out to gather wood, he spots a man trying to take a shot on Anson. Anson raises the alarm by throwing a horseshoe at the shooter, bringing the Kid and Anson out, prompting the shooter to flee. When the Kid tries to puzzle out why Anson's life would be in jeopardy three times in the row he asks Anson if he has anything of value. Anson does not, the only thing he purchased recently is his hand which he obtained from a second hand store. The following morning, Anson joins the Rawhide Kid as he brings Randy to school. At the school house the teacher remarks how Anson's hat resembles that worn by Sam Dodd, who raised defence funds for the soldiers who defended the Alamo back in 1836. The Kid recalls how Dodd was bringing a fortune to Texas on a supply trip to the Alamo and the fortune went missing.

As they ride back to the Kid's home, they realize that the hat that Anson purchased must have previously belong to Sam Dodd, a theory that gains legitimacy when Anson realizes that the initials "S.D." are etched into the hat. They are suddenly confronted by a gang of outlaws that demand the hat. Tired of being hunted, Anson stuffs it on the head of the gang leader and a fight breaks out. The Kid shoots the guns out of the outlaws hands forcing them to surrender. Recovering the hat, Anson checks the hat band and finds the "treasure" they were so eagerly after: A letter from President Andrew Jackson wishing the troops luck.
