Becoming a hero by accidentally leading a cavalry charge the wrong way, Lieutenant Wilton Parmenter is promoted to Captain and given command of Fort Courage. The Fort's crafty Sgt. O'Rourke has a deal with the local Hekawi Indians to market their wares to the tourists.
Dancing and the military were a large part of Ken Berry's life. When he was 13 he attended a carnival ...
The so-called "Scourge of the West", he is credited with keeping the peace (which is in fact really kept by O'Rourke's secret treaty with the Hekawi tribe.) Chief Wild Eagle knows him by a different title: "The Great White Pigeon". When the need to keep up appearances arises, the troopers and the Hekawis stage mock battles for the benefit of outsiders. Parmenter is successful at keeping the peace – he just doesn't know why. Originally from, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania he is well-meaning and sweet-natured, although essentially clueless. He is invariably kind and encouraging to his men – and always bravely (albeit ineptly) leads them into action. A perpetual klutz, Parmenter is unable to fold maps or even dismount properly, and frequently becomes entangled with his ceremonial sword.
