Storyline

Tom Norman, the son of the colonel, falls in love with pretty Nell, the daughter of a corporal. The colonel frowns upon the match and sends his son to college. Six months completely tire Tom of college life and he enlists in the army. The colonel is hurt over Tom's conduct and refuses to communicate with him. Two years later, Tom, who has won his sergeant's stripes, is assigned to his father's post. The colonel refuses to recognize him as his son. Nell and her father, however, welcome him back. A sudden uprising of the Indians sends the emigrants and settlers scampering for safety. Blazing cabins dot the surrounding country. At the head of a squadron of cavalry Colonel Norman sallies forth, confident in the belief that short work would be made of the redskins.

The picture opens into a series of real thrills
11 December 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A very thrilling picture, telling a love story of army life on the early frontier, and with incidents from an Indian raid that are fresh, natural and convincing. The Bison people have specialized on this kind of picture. They can do other things also, but they do frontier war scenes extremely well. This is only a one-reel offering, but it shows their work at its best. The heroine of the picture (Miss Grandin) is daughter of an army sergeant. The hero, a good-looking young man, is the colonel's son. It opens with a few scenes at the post. The colonel learns of the romance and sends the boy away to an Eastern college. The son gets tired of it and enlists as a common soldier. He becomes a sergeant and is transferred to his father's post. The scenes that follow his arrival are very convincing, and at once the picture opens into a series of real thrills. The soldiers arc called out to punish red-skins who have raided a settlement. The son heroically saves his father's life. The climax is fine as is the pretty, poetic denouement. The photography is good. - The Moving Picture World, July 13, 1912
