The Last Cartridge, an Incident of the Sepoy Rebellion in India

(Vitagraph Company of America, 1908)

A group of British soldiers are caught off-guard by Indian mutineers during the Sepoy Rebellion of 1857. Their numbers dwindle until only the commander and his daughter are left alive. The only hope is that the man they sent out for reinforcement returns. Otherwise, the commander saves the last cartridge for his daughter, lest the mutineers take her.

Also known as His Last Cartridge.
