In "The Locket", a confederate soldier declines his fellow soldiers' request to reveal the contents of the locket around his neck. The locket, which holds pictures of his fiancee's parents and the date of their wedding is found on the battlefield after a battle. Later, the soldier's fiancee visits the battlefield with the soldier's father, both shaken with grief. The soldier's father asks his son's fiancee to remove her veil, as it contrasts too sharply with the beautiful day and adds that on such a day miracles seem ready to happen. Returning home, something extraordinary happens to make her believe he may be right.
