It is somewhat improbable
12 December 2015 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A war story intermixed with a love tale, having its beginning before the war and brought to a happy consummation afterward. These war tales have considerable interest and in instances like this where an effort is made to make the story true to possibilities the interest is maintained throughout with no violent shock. The accessories and setting appear to be reasonably accurate. The only point where one's credulity requires re-enforcement is when the girl, her Confederate brother and her Union lover are all together under one roof. It is not impossible. It is somewhat improbable. - The Moving Picture World, April 1, 1911
