A picture in the series of Revolutionary incidents that the Edison Company is undertaking. It's a story of the retreat from New York. The American army had just passed Mrs. Murray's house when the British army arrives. She invites the officers in and entertains them. Meanwhile a young American officer, a friend of Mrs. Murray's daughter, comes back to the house and is told of the situation. He dresses up as a servant and brings in the tray of wine to the British officers and cleverly manages to get the map that they have made. They suspect him and he has to fight his way out. He carries the map safely to General Putnam of the American forces. The picture is well acted and very good entertainment, as well as being an instructive, educational picture. - The Moving Picture World, October 21, 1911
