John Breen, a Kentucky militiaman, falls in love with French exile Fleurette de Marchand (Vera Ralston). He discovers a plot to steal the land that Fleurette's exiles plan to settle on. Breen is mistaken for a land surveyor and is presented with a theodolite and sets out with Willie (Oliver Hardy) to look as if they are surveying (they do not actually know what to do).

A further pretense occurs when Breen sits on stage with a group of fiddlers and feigns being able to play.

Throughout the film, Breen's soldiers sing:

Only six hundred miles more to go
Only six hundred miles more to go
And if we can just get lucky
We will end up in Kentucky
Only six hundred miles more to go
When the song is first heard, there are eight hundred miles to go (the tune is She'll Be Coming Round the Mountain).
