Federal Soldiers lined up for inspection at Ojinaga, Mexico. Associated Press Reporter Charles A. Pryor and cameraman on the scene. Generals Mercado (film slate says "Mercada" which is incorrect spelling) and General Castro who evacuated Ojinaga stand with other Federals. Shot of Charles A. Pryor (Chas) again, who was captured and held by Federals at Ojinaga, and released by General Castro. Views of Federal encampment with low brick buildings and tents. Horse carts cross a stream. American Punitive Expedition forces seen among those crossing. Federal gunners fire with tanks and rifles, while lined up behind an embankment. Dead men on ground and a dead horse. Federal generals look through binoculars, standing behind the firing line. Federal soldiers search for hidden treasure by dismantling rebel encampment buildings. (They are likely seeking a horde of gold that was reportedly hidden by Pancho Villa somewhere near Devils Cave on the Cerrito de la Santa Cruz, near Ojinaga).
