Storyline

John Lawton, a Confederate soldier, is given a home leave to recover from his wounds. His little son Bud, a mountain lad of eight, is inspired with the marshal spirit of the times, and when his mother makes him a little Confederate flag, he takes his father's musket and stations himself at a mountain pass, appointing himself its guardian. With Snag Riley, he defends the pass. Snag falls dead, and shortly afterwards Bud reels and falls, mortally wounded, across his body. His mother finds little Bud dying; she lifts him tenderly on her arm and smooths his brow. Reverently covering him with the Confederate flag, the Union soldiers stand sorrowfully gazing at the form of the manly little hero. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
