Storyline

Battery B makes its headquarters at the Colwell Mansion. During their stay of a month, Major Pitt and Bugler Harkness lose their hearts to the two Colwell girls. Major Pitt, summoned to the front, leaves Bugler Harkness alone in charge of headquarters. During the battle that follows, Battery B bears the brunt of the fight and does not surrender until almost the last man is killed. A cavalry charge carries the day for the Federal troops and the triumphant northerners, advancing upon the town, receive an unexpected check at the Colwell Mansion. A cannon that has been left at headquarters owing to an accident to one of its wheels, is operated by Bugler Harkness and the girls to such good effect that the Federals are compelled to retreat. A visit from Stonewall Jackson, who has been a distant witness of the brave boy's work, transforms the bugler to a lieutenant. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Leaves the bugler in charge of headquarters
31 December 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This, as the title indicates, is a military story. It concerns the commander of a battery and his bugler, who loved two sisters. The commander, who somehow is a major, is summoned to the front and leaves the bugler in charge of headquarters, which is the home of the sisters; behind him he leaves a piece of artillery, and takes with him every man except the bugler. A company of Federals approach to attack. The bugler, aided by the sisters, serves the piece. At the first shot the Federals drop to the ground. At the second they stay just where they are. At the third they run away, although they have wounded the bugler. Stonewall Jackson arrives and makes the bugler a lieutenant. He does not court-martial the major for leaving one man in charge of a fieldpiece. - The Moving Picture World, July 27, 1912
