|Plot||Belle Boyd was one of the most daring and dashing figures of the South in the great Civil War. She was captured and imprisoned a number of times, and was personally commended by General Stonewall Jackson for her distinguished services on behalf of his army and her country. The details of this story are fictional, although it is an historic fact. Belle Boyd went through the zone of fire on a battlefield, escaping by dropping to the ground between every volley and then jumping to her feet and running toward the Confederate battery. The scene opens with the home of Belle Boyd in neutral ground. She and her girl companions are "sewing-up" the gallant battle-scarred Southerners, whose uniforms were necessarily neglected after the first few years of strenuous service. The watchful darkey runs into the parlor where the tailoring is proceeding on the living models and sounds the alarm, "The Tanks are coming," The Confederate officers desert their sweethearts, mount in hot haste and make for their lines! They are well out of the way when a Federal troop of cavalry escorting General Shields and staff come upon the porch. The General says they must use the house a few moments to discuss battle plans. Aunt Cloe ushers them into a parlor at the invitation of Belle Boyd. This parlor is rather dilapidated. The General sends his orderly out to inspect the premises to observe if they are safe from eavesdroppers and posts a sentinel at the door of the parlor. The soldier inspects, but he no sooner leaves the room above the parlor than Belle Boyd emerges from hiding in an old armor. She darkens the room, draws aside the rug in the center and looks through the hole in the ceiling, sees the plans exposed on the parlor table below and hears of a plot to capture General Jackson. She makes note of them, as they are most important for "the cause." When the officers depart she is at the front door to bid them "good bye" and through substituting a blank roll secures the battle plan from an enamored subordinate. Men follow her wild ride and her race through the battlefield, bringing information that saves Jackson's corps from defeat.... search for Belle Boyd, a Confederate Spy on IMDb|
