Summary
"In the war between the blue and the gray, one soldier is yellow! When a cantankerous Union colonel is labeled a coward after his horse bolts for the rear, the brass puts him in command of a company of the brainless and brawnless and sends them all West. The idea is to keep the misfits out of action. Instead, they ride straight into slapstick encounters with a purty spy, a passel of happy-go-lucky harlots, a shipment of Union gold and a wily band of Johnny Rebs"--Container
