An example of the national embrace of the Lost Cause in popular culture in the early 20th century, The Coward explores the theme of courage in battle. The elderly Winslow, a proud and prominent Virginia planter, volunteers his and his son's service to the Confederate Army. When the son deserts due to cowardice, his father takes his place. The young son redeems himself when he obtains intelligence about Union army strategy and conveys it to the Confederate army.
