Storyline

At the battle of Piedmont Heights, one of the culminating episodes of Sherman's march to the sea, a wounded Confederate sharpshooter is saved from death, and carried into the Northern lines by a Union scout. During the convalescence of the prisoner, a warm friendship springs up between the two men, which is interrupted by the return of the Southerner, and the close of the war shortly afterward. Years later, the Northerner is robbed of his money on the train, and forced to alight at Atlanta. He recognizes a gentleman at the station as his former captive and friend. The Southerner, with the characteristic hospitality of his race, immediately gives up all other affairs to suitably entertain his friend. After luncheon in the Southerner's comfortable home, the two men ride about the city in an automobile, that the Northern man may see the prosperous city which has arisen from the smoking ashes Sherman left.

More artistic than the usual travel scenic
24 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The primary intention of this film is to give some views of the city of Atlanta, Ga. But Charles M. Seay who made it, has produced something far more artistic than the usual travel scenic. He tells a slight story to make us journey to the place he wants to picture. He should have inserted a subtitle stating that the traveler, an old man, would have to wait for the next train all morning and so could see the city. The photographs are clear and interesting, and the story has three fine scenes (a), a very pretty window in Ohio, (b), a charming Southern dining room, and (c), the parting of the old soldier friends, Herbert Prior, whose acting is particularly fine at this point, and William West. We thoroughly enjoyed this offering and commend it highly. - The Moving Picture World, July 19, 1913
