Vera Cross, a Southern sympathizer, volunteers to carry a message from Gen. Plough at Fort Barancas to Gen. Krantz. Disguising herself as a farmer's daughter Vera starts out to perform her mission. While on her way she meets Ralph Christie, of the Federal Army, who has been sent to learn the strength of Fort Barancas. Although Ralph is disguised as a young farmer, Vera becomes suspicious of him. While traveling together over a short piece of the road Christie protects Vera from an attack of three ruffians, thereby earning her gratitude. As the country seems infested with stragglers from the army, Christie decides to continue with Vera until she has passed out of the danger zone.

A novelty in the work of spies during war
13 August 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

It has remained for this company to introduce a novelty in the work of spies during war by sending out a woman from one army and a man from the other and arranging to have them meet while they are engaged in their special missions. Of course there is a love affair. There are some interesting escapades and a rescue or two from ruffians to add zest to the picture. Eventually there comes a time when it is necessary for the girl to expose the man, but love proves stronger than duty and she fails to do it. A mutual understanding is reached and there is a promise on the part of the man to return after the war closes and claim her. It is a good story and is well told, albeit a little far fetched. It has the good quality of Kalem war pictures. - The Moving Picture World, February 3, 1912
