As war breaks out between the North and the South, Johnny enlists to win Anabelle's heart, and he is made engineer of his own locomotive, The General. When Union spies steal his train and put the life of Annabelle in danger, Johnny takes matters into his own hands.

While in town William runs into Kitty (Marion Bryan), an old flame who wants to introduce him to her father. There's one problem--her father is the owner of a rival riverboat company that threatens to put William's father out of business!"--Container.
