Lacks punch, because of its improbability
Technically well put to-gether, this two-part drama of Civil War times lacks punch, because of its improbability. Little "Baby" Lillian Wade is a good actress. It is understandable when we consider the atmosphere in which she lives, but when she makes the baby in the picture just as skillful an actresses as herself, it isn't understandable. Then this child of three or thereabouts realizes the military import of the Confederate plans as the officers talk about them. She tells her mother who makes her copy an important order while she is entertaining the officers at dinner in another room. Then the mother rides to the Union camp with the information and saves the army in which her husband is a private. The husband is then given a long furlough at home. It would have even better technicality if more space had been used to emphasize the friendship of father and daughter before the war. Such things are always better shown strongly than indicated and left to the understanding. - The Moving Picture World, June 13, 1914
