Storyline

During the American Civil War, General Ulysses Grant carries out the 'Tennessee Plan,' which involves stopping the Confederate supply line on the Tennessee River. This proved to be a vital action for the North in its push south. After the war, Anna Ella Carroll of Maryland, who had been a confidante of President Lincoln, claims authorship of the plan. Miss Carroll presses her claim for some 20 years. Although the U.S. Government finds no evidence to establish her claim, neither is it officially denied.

Strange historical event during Civil War re "The Tennessee Plan"...
4 May 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Seems that authorship of "The Tennessee Plan," a strategy for cutting the Confederacy in half during the American Civil War, was conceived by a woman, Anna Ella Carroll, who claims that she delivered the plan to President Abraham Lincoln in confidence.

Since Lincoln never credited anyone with the plan, it's unknown to this day whether her story is truthful or not. She goes before various committees over a period of twenty years or more and no conclusion is ever reached to verify her story. Lincoln was supposed to tell the nation when the war was over but it never happened.

Interesting little short from MGM, it deserves to be seen, well acted and presented by MGM and narrated by Carey Wilson.
