This Kalem drama was set during the Colonial period. The daughter of the governor of Virginia falls in love with a "radical" young minister. Meanwhile, the clouds of war begin gathering as England prepares to reclaim Virginia for the Crown. As the colonial army marches past his church, the minister tosses off his clerical robes and joins them. Several years pass: The ex-minister, on an espionage mission for the Americans, disguises himself as a woman and takes refuge in the Governor's mansion. The daughter, whose loyalties remain with King George, at first intends to turn the minister-turned-spy over to the authorities. But she relents, shielding her former fiance when the British troops arrive. The hero comes out of hiding when one of the Britishers makes untoward advances toward the girl. Donning the unconscious British officer's uniform, the pugnacious ex-clergyman makes his escape, not returning to his vows -- and his sweetheart -- until after the war has been won.
