Storyline

Colonel Mason, a Confederate, is wounded and taken prisoner by the Union army, and is placed in their hospital for treatment. He escapes and manages to get into his home, which is surrounded by Union soldiers. His son, Bobbie, dons the clothes of the son of the colored servant, named Mammy, which are rather ragged, and applies for a position as drummer boy in the Union ranks. He is accepted and is given a suit of Union clothes. Although too large for him. He manages to get into the house to his father, who quickly puts on his son's regimentals. He then passes out of the house as a Union soldier. Back with his regiment again, he relates his experience to his comrades, who immediately appoint Bobbie as one of their drummer boys. After the war, Bobbie and his father return home, where they are greeted warmly by all. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
