Seven military men find themselves odd men out as the nineteenth century moves into the twentieth century. The United States cavalry is almost a thing of the past. After a fleeting dalliance with glory in Cuba, the men are dispatched to southwest Texas to serve under a pompous, self serving martinet. Trouble inevitably ensues and the men are eventually asked to leave the military. With no clear plan for the immediate future, the seven find action and adventure in Mexico before settling in the bayous of southwest Mississippi. There, still more fierce battles are waged spurred on by the clash of cultural and social disparit.
