Davies is an actress during the Civil War who becomes a Union spy. She goes behind Confederate lines with experienced spy Alexander and they end up at the mansion Gen. Jeb Stuart uses for his headquarters. Alexander is a guest at the mansion and Davies is hired as a washerwoman. Davies

meets Cooper, who is a scout. Alexander is discovered as a spy and sentenced to death. Davies helps her escape back to Union lines and learns that Cooper is organizing southern sympathizers in the North. She pretends to be a southern belle at a mansion in Richmond, meets Cooper again, and they

fall in love. Eventually, Davies is discovered and makes her escape with another Union spy. Cooper tracks them down as a Union column approaches. The other spy wants to kill Cooper, but Davies handcuffs herself to her lover and they hide in a well. The Union soldiers shoot the other spy, who is

dressed as a Confederate soldier, but they leave when they cannot find Davies. Cooper and Davies come out of the well, Cooper breaks the handcuffs, kisses her goodbye, and goes back to his outfit. This was Cooper's third loan-out from Paramount for this strictly Davies film. Folsey was nominated

for an Academy Award for his photography.
