In the midst of Reconstruction a time of terror and trouble looming in the South the love strain is still heard above the lands miserere In an outdoor love scene in a pine forest Ben and Elsie kiss and he presents her with a love token - a white dove Silas Lynch spies on them watching Elsie But the defeated South cannot easily forget bitter memories will not allow the poor bruised heart of the South to forget In the garden Phil approaches good-humoredly through the foliage and affectionately tries to talk to Margaret his former lover But she stares ahead and then at him with a stony expression on her face - she refuses to speak to him Her face is captured with a cameo-profile She draws away from him and goes to another part of the garden She sees in her imagination in a balloon vignette as a separate shot a medium-closeup of dead brother Wade on the battlefield Although Elsie and Ben are in love they still represent opposite sides of the conflict Pride battles with love for the hearts conquest They hesitate in a kiss and then abandon themselves to each other in a beautiful outdoor setting They experience a combination of loves rhapsodies and loves tears After they return to their separate locations Elsie is obviously in love - in the privacy of her own bedroom she excitedly hugs and kisses the bedpost a phallic symbol Election day comes Blacks are given the ballot and they take over the political polls while the leading white citizens are disenfranchised Negroes
