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 Glory (1938)

*** (out of 4)

Carey Wilson short from his "An Historical Mystery" series takes a look at the debate of who should get credit for the "Tennessee Plan", which pretty much helped the North win the Civil War. Eight years after President Lincoln was killed, Northerner Anna Ella Carroll (Fay Helm) came to say that she was the brain behind the plan and that she discussed it with Lincoln yet no one knows of their meeting or the reasons why the President thought they should keep it a secret until after the war. I really love this series from MGM as they offer up fascinating stories even though they are mainly thrown at the conspiracy theorist inside me. This episode is yet another interesting case that I had never heard about but it does make for a good mystery, which is the entire point of the series. Frank McGlynn, Sr. plays Lincoln here, a role that he would play over ten times in his career including the 1924 film ABRAHAM LINCOLN, John Ford's THE PRISONER OF SHARK ISLAND and THE LITTLE REBEL. He is quite good here as is Helm as the woman behind the mystery. Director Tourneur does a very good job with the material and this is easy to see early on during the Civil War footage.
