A good story is told in this film and a brave little girl is given an opportunity to display her patriotism. There is a capture of a French fort by English soldiers, its recapture by the French and Indians, a near execution by the Indians, prevented only by the locket which the young Frenchman wears, given him by the girl who befriended an Indian The girl's resentfulness toward the English, and her grabbing up of the French flag and running with it as it falls, are realistic, while her lover's daring escape is a good bit of work. The background is interesting and is helpful in interpreting the story. It will be popular. The bravery and intense action are certain to please. - The Moving Picture World, October 21, 1911
