One doesn't expect too much of war pictures
The fighting schoolmaster was a Yankee in the south when Sumter was fired on. Between him and a Southern girl (Miss Story takes the part) there had been something more than mere friendship; but this was changed by his marching off with the Union troops. The war's last battle raged around the heroine's home. The schoolmaster-soldier saved her brother's life and the boys in blue, Lee having surrendered, carry the boy home. It closes with a love scene. The picture as a whole has some freshness; one doesn't expect too much of war pictures. It is well acted and the scenes are well arranged. - The Moving Picture World, October 28, 1911
