Notes
-  Copyright: James H. White; 28Nov1899; 77713.
-  Original main title lacking. DLC
-  Duration: 3:02 at 16 fps.
-  Materials listed originate from the paper print chosen best copy of two for digitization; for other holdings on this title, contact M/B/RS reference staff. DLC
-  From Edison films catalog: An illustrated song telling the story of a hero who leaves for the war as a private, is promoted to the rank of captain for bravery in service, meets the girl of his choice, who is a Red Cross nurse on the field, and finally returns home triumphantly as an officer to the father and mother to whom he bade good bye as a private. The film presents this beautiful song picture in six scenes, each of which has a separate song, making the entire series a complete and effective novelty. PARTING. -- "Our hero boy to the war has gone." Words and music. CAMPING. -- "What! A letter from home." Words and music. FIGHTING. -- The battle prayer. "Father, on Thee I Call." Words and music. CONVALESCING. -- "Weeping, Sad and Lonely." Words and music. SORROWING. -- The mother's lament, "Come back, my dear boy, to me." Words and music. RETURNING. -- When our hero boy comes back again. Hurrah! Hurrah! "Star Spangled Banner." Words and music. The above scene can be illustrated either by a soloist, quartette or with an orchestra, and with or without stereopticon slides. This series of animated pictures, when properly illustrated or announced by stereopticon reading matter, should make a great success. Length 200 feet, complete with words of song and music. $45.00.
-  Only four of the scenes described in the Edison catalog were submitted for copyright under the title Love and war and thus survive in the Library's paper print copy; two other scenes were likely produced and, perhaps, copyrighted as separate films but then added to the Love and war picture song when sold to fill out the description.

-  Edison code name (for telegraphic orders): Uncholeric.

-  Filmed ca. June-September 1899.
