The Gray Ghost (1957): S01E23 – The Rivals


The Gray Ghost is an American historical television series which aired in syndication from 10 October 1957 to 03 July 1958.

The show is based upon the true story of Major John Singleton Mosby, a Virginia officer in the Confederate Army, whose cunning and stealth earned him the nickname “Gray Ghost”.


Mosby’s men capture a Union naval officer, Captain Steven Craig, who was traveling with an army escort. Mosby knew the man before the war because the two men were rivals for the same pretty girl who is now Craig’s fiancée. Mosby doesn’t believe that Craig would risk traveling through territory the Rangers control just to visit his fiancée, as Craig claims, and tries to learn the real meaning behind his rival’s clandestine visit.
