Movie: 10th U.S. Infantry, 2nd Battalion, leaving cars

From Edison films "war extra" catalog: Hurrah--here they come! Hot, dusty, grim and determined! Real soldiers, every inch of them! No gold lace and chalked belts and shoulder straps, but fully equipped in full marching order: blankets, guns, knapsacks and canteens. Train is in the background. Crowds of curious bystanders. Small boys in abundance. The column marches in fours and passes through the front of the picture.

Filmed May 1, 1898, in Ybor City, Tampa, Florida.
