With him as chief scout is Alfred L. Chapman. Others in his command are Major Reno, Capt. Bates, Lieut. Woodruff and Lieut. Kane. Marjorie Woodruff, sister to Lieut. Woodruff, is the belle of the post. Every officer is in love with her, but Captain Bates and Chapman are recognized rivals. Marjorie's brother has a decided objection to Chapman's suit, and does not hesitate to acquaint Marjorie with the fact. She, however, possesses a will of her own. Chapman proposes to Marjorie, who tells him that she will give him an answer on the morrow. Chapman leaves her, meets the young lieutenant, and the two are kept from coming to blows only by the intervention of brother officers. Bates then proposes to Marjorie, and is accepted.

An exceptional offering
4 July 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

An excellent two-reel Western number, produced by Henry McRae. Alfred L. Chapman, the last remaining witness of the Custer massacre, is shown telling the story of the great military tragedy. The entire story adheres fairly well to historical facts. The photography is clear and smooth, the scenic effects picturesque and the view of the massacre itself is convincing. In spirited action, strength of plot and general interest this is an exceptional offering. - The Moving Picture World, January 9, 1915
