Horses and wagons, trucks, and a staff car are also seen. Next scene shows a long line of U.S. troops and trucks clogging a road. German prisoners, including some ambulatory wounded, walk past French canvas-covered wagons, and are seen near French soldiers. French troops with wagons pulled by donkeys, pass German prisoners of war, and enter the town of Longmont. Mounted French soldiers pull a caisson. The destroyed Abbey of Longmont is seen in the background as mounted French soldiers ride into the town. More German POWs walk towards the rear, past them. More views of the destroyed Abbey.
