Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The latest graft-ridden scheme hatched by Boss Hogg (Sorrell Booke) involves plowing up a veteran's cemetery in order to build a new highway. Unfortunately, this would reveal that the grave supposedly occupied by the late con artist Henry Flatt is empty--mainly because Flatt (played by Hal Smith, formerly town drunk Otis Campbell on The Andy Griffith Show) had faked his death a year before! Worried that his loved ones would suffer if he was proven to be alive, Flatt turns to the Dukes for help. This episode was directed by series regular Denver Pyle (Jesse Duke).
