Storyline

James Adams and his brother-in-law, Paul Chase, united in friendship by their mutual love for Mrs. Adams, part at the outbreak of the Civil War because their sympathies call them to different sides in the great struggle of fifty years ago. In what proves to be the decisive struggle of the great conflict, four years later. Adams, now with the rank of Major, first meets his brother-in-law, Major Chase, on the field of battle before Richmond. Major Adams is leading a force of Union soldiers in an effort to capture and control a bridge ably defended by the Confederate troops under Major Chase.

There is a sustained interest throughout the two parts
30 August 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Here is a two-reel special, made in America, based on the old, ever young, story of the North and South. There is a sustained interest throughout the two parts. The acting is strong, melodramatic, perhaps, but the chief actors. Paul W. Panzer and Crane Wilbur, were portraying stirring times. Much may be said of the picture from the spectacular side, one of the features being the destruction of a railroad by means of ripping up the rails and ties and heating and twisting the rails and burning the ties. There are several battle scenes, which are well handled. - The Moving Picture World, April 26, 1913
