United States President Woodrow Wilson and his party enter a car and leaves the White House in Washington DC for his Summer White House (or "Summer Capitol"), Shadow Lawn, in Long Branch New Jersey. Well-wishers at the White House stand and wave as the car departs the dirt road driveway of the White House, and a 2nd car with a security detail follows. View of Shadow Lawn, the estate of Joseph Benedict Greenhut. (The estate shown here was originally built in 1903 by John A. McCall of New York Life Insurance Company. He sold it to Greenhut. It was later destroyed by fire, and a mansion belonging to F.W. Woolworth President Hubert T. Parsons was built on the site. That estate is now part of Monmouth College). Large group of people gathered on the front lawn of Shadow Lawn to hear President Wilson speak at a 1916 campaign event. He is introduced and then approaches the podium as people cheer. The estate and podium area at the front of a soaring exterior portico is decorated with many American flags and swags.
