Theodore Roosevelt and other dignitaries watch new inductees, in civilian clothes, march in a parade on 5th Avenue, New York City during World War 1. Thousands of inductees march from the recruit draft center carrying the U.S. flags. Men on rooftops watch the parade. U.S. flags hand from several buildings. Back at the recruiting center, new recruits, with their baggage, are escorted to curbside by an official. Several young women well-wishers speak to them. Other recruits are directed by Army soldiers, at a railroad yard, where a train waits to carry them to camp. Some passing railroad workers taunt the recruits and an Army soldier has to step in to quell the start of a fight. Another quick view of recruits leaving the center. (WWI; WW1)
