Two bandits, who have finished a robbery wearing blue army jackets, are mistaken for authentic soldiers by a squad of soldiers escorting a stagecoach en route to Fort Alamo. It doesn’t take Sergeant Warwick long to realize the deception, but prefers to remain silent convinced that the experienced outlaws and their guns will be useful. If Bud, one of the two outlaws, helps the caravan out of a difficult situation. He redeems his sins with heroic and altruistic behavior, Bud manages to gain the esteem of his new companions and the love of a gracious woman. The second outlaw suffers a different fate.
