Description by OLDIES.com:
Two lovers in a small town in Maryland are torn apart by the Civil War--she is loyal to the south while he heads north to join the federal army, determined to protect the Union. Eventually his unit arrives in his hometown and he is reunited with his lover, but things aren't the way they used to be.
BARBARA FRIETCHIE is a silent love story based on Clyde Fitch's turn-of-the-20th-century play that was itself based loosely on a poem inspired by a real-life woman. Like Fitch's play, the film creatively mixes Frietchie's life with the story of a lovesick couple--a Northern soldier and a Southern belle--during the Civil War.
