American military mission, to Turkey and Armenia, visits Erzincan, Turkey.

Members of the U.S. Military Mission to Turkey and Armenia, following World War 1, climb the steps of the Courthouse in Erzinjan (Erzincan) Turkey (the Provincial Capital). Next, an honor guard of Turkish infantry are seen marching along the street. Local people stand at the side of the road, across from the government building, where two Turkish soldiers stretch a banner across the steps reading (in French) "Long live the 12th principle of Wilson." (This alludes to the 12th point in a speech by U.S. President Wilson in January, 1918, that set the stage for ending World War 1. It stated, in essence, that The Turkish part of the Ottoman Empire should remain sovereign, while other nationalities under Turkish rule should be free to develop autonomously.) The film ends showing members of the Mission visiting a Red Cross Orphanage, where a group of little girls walk past them.
