During a wagon train journey out West, the Wyatt family is attacked by outlaws.  Young John Wyatt falls out of the wagon and rolls unconscious out of sight, while the outlaws murder his parents and kidnap his younger brother, Jim.  Years later, Jim has been raised by the outlaws, and has no knowledge of what they did to his family.  Conversely, John has grown to become a defender of the innocents from the outlaws and has put together a posse called the Vigilantes that all dress alike.  John has been hunting the outlaws that killed his parents and kidnapped his brother, and eventually their paths cross.  John must discover his brother’s identity, and convince him to fight on the right side of the law against the only family the boy has ever known.
 
Notes:

Westward Ho!  was the first picture for the fledgling Republic Studios.
