York a captured city, the puny frag-
ments of the small American army
driven into the inaccessible regions
of the Far West; the American women
banded in the oath-bound order of the
Daughters of Jael against the invader;
the wild rides of the women patriots
and their male colleagues; the recap-
ture of forts, wireless stations and
ships by the patriotic conspirators;
THE RECOVERY OF AMERICA, but
at the fearful price of our Unprepar-
edness folly; Loss of myriad lives, of
billions of treasure, and of our pride
in an untarnished Republic.
The New York Evening Sun re-
marks that "it takes a stirring pic-
ture to make us cheer our own de-
struction, but this picture does it"-
with of course enormously increased
enthusiasm at the very end over
America's final victory.
Were you thrilled by "The Birth of
a Nation?" Then you realize Thomas
Dixon's mastery of spectacular appeal,
his ability to play the gamut of human
emotion, and "The Fall of a Nation,"
the sequel to the earlier work by this
same author, will interest and satisfy
you as "The Birth of a Nation" did.
