Storyline

John Reed, a confederate veteran, gathered to his fathers, leaves no property to his faithful old wife and dashing son, John, Jr., except his battered sword and the tattered flag he fought for, with admonition to his son to live up to their record for valor and honor. When the war breaks out between Spain and the United States, John insists upon enlisting and his mother finally consents, giving him his father's sword, while he tucks the confederate flag in the bosom of his blouse. He is detailed for dangerous duty as a scout along the line that Weyler's wire entanglements and block-houses made so deadly. The little band of American soldiers is attacked by a superior force of Spaniards and they take refuge in a tobacco store-house. Their troop flag is swept away on the flame of a shell. John, who raised it on the little pole on the roof, received at the same time a nasty wound in the shoulder.

It has not been strongly acted at all points
17 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A picture that needs good music to make it go well. It has several scenes that, when followed rightly, are thrilling; they are battle scenes and especially a group of scenes showing Americans besieged by Spaniards in a block house (rather flimsy in construction) until they are rescued by the main force. It happens that the hero has taken the C.S.A. Stars and Bars to Cuba with him and when the Stars and Stripes are shot away. Uncle Sam's boys raise the other flag and fight under it. It has not been strongly acted at all points. The photography is fair. - The Moving Picture World, June 21, 1913
