Storyline

The story opens with a reception given in honor of the Confederate volunteers. Hardee, a sturdy young lieutenant, bids good-bye to his sweetheart, Alisia, who is the elder daughter of Mr. John Stafford, a representative Southern gentleman. Alisia is inclined to be coquettish and does not take the young suitor seriously. As the officer leaves for the front, he little realizes that Mystie, the younger sister of Alisia, is deeply in love with him. A few weeks later the Staffords receive word from Hardee that within a few weeks he expects to camp near their home. Mystie utters an exclamation of delight, but Alisia displays no interest. Shortly after the receipt of Hardee's message, the Federals occupy the land surrounding the Strafford estate and make their headquarters at the house. Hardee, anxious to visit Alisia, volunteers to act as a spy and learn the plans of the Federals.

One of the best Southern sets we have ever seen
25 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

Romance and pretty girls are the saving graces of this picture, rather than convincing thrills. The first scene is set in the great hall of a stately Southern mansion. This appears several times. It is the home of the heroine and her sister, both very pretty and good players, and is one of the best Southern sets we have ever seen. The hero comes to the house, when the Union forces are there, as a spy, and is wounded in trying to escape. The girl carries his message on and not only saves the Confederate camp, but causes the capture of the Union forces. These things do not powerfully convince. The photographs are fair. If it were all as good as the best scene, we could safely call it a popular feature. It has the popular things in good measure. It is a good filler that will be liked, especially in the South. - The Moving Picture World, April 20, 1912
