John carries with him a small locket given by Mary, and in a skirmish with a number of Confederate scouts, the locket saves his life. The next day in battle, John, riding his faithful horse Billy, is mortally wounded in saving the flag from the Confederates. Alone on the battlefield, old Billy guarding over him, John detaches the locket from his neck and slipping it on Billy's bridle rein, tells him to go to Mary. Mary alone, waiting in anxiety to hear from John, is on her knees praying when the old horse runs up. The empty saddle and the locket tell the story and the girl, again dropping on her knees, murmurs. "Thy will be done." Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
