However, in 1883 episode 9, Elsa slipped on her mother’s earnest requests to change her dress, as the wagon train was slowly approaching a fort. 

When Margaret was questioned about the matter, she broke down into tears, revealing, “It did not even occur to me when I read the script. I read it a thousand times. It did not occur to me even after we filmed it.”

  1. yes, 1st her husband told her to stay there and wait…..2nd she made Elsa change clothes….had they stayed there, when the Indians returned, they would have known they were not responsible for the massacre of their families,. seeing Elsa dressed in the Indian vest would have lead him to speak to her, giving her the opportunity to explain they found the village like this and her father and the other men have gone after the ones who done it.
