New York City celebrates the Armistice ending World War 1. View from above of crowds on 5th avenue, in Manhattan, New York city, gathered at Madison Square, around the Altar of Liberty designed by architect Thomas Hastings, to honor the homecoming troops from the World War. The crowd forms a sea of waving hats, hands, and flags. Scene shifts to George Washington Statue at Federal Hall, Wall Street, which has been draped with American flag and signs reading: "Liberty cannot die." A clergyman stands below the statue and paces back and forth like a cheerleader. Closeup of a bearded Jewish man, wrapped in a Yiddish newspaper announcing the end of the war. He is blowing a horn and has an American flag and a blue and white Jewish flag fastened to his back. Camera pans over young women dressed in costumes as: soldiers, nurses, drum majorettes, the statue of liberty, red cross workers, and Uncle Sam. (World War I; World War 1; WWI; WW1)
