10th U.S. Infantry, 2nd Battalion Leaving Cars - 1898

American movie. "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 in background. Crowds of curious bystanders; comical looking 'dude' with a sun-umbrella strolls languidly in the foreground, and you almost hear that 'yaller dog' bark. Small boys in abundance. The column marches in fours and passes through the front of the picture. More small boys all colors. The picture is excellent in outline and full of vigorous life. Written by Edison Catalog (1898)
