Storyline

It was Christmas Eve in the south, but the spirit of peace and love did not pervade the northern girl's heart. The gallantry of the young southern swains, however, was more than manifest, when a drunken band of Unionists entered the house, among them her sweetheart. From him was protection needed most. His rival, a Confederate soldier, showed her that character is far above political principle, and true love came into its own. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

It can hardly be called a success
11 February 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A war story in which good photography is the most pleasing feature. The spectacle of the officers and members of an entire company of Union soldiers in a drunken orgy, insulting Southern women, is not in keeping with military traditions. The plot of this film does not arouse the right kind of emotions in the observer and it can hardly be called a success on this account. - The Moving Picture World, December 20, 1913
