World War I Draft and mobilization activities in 1917-1918. American WWI military recruits get down from a railroad train to get to the training camp. U.S. Military officials board the seized Dutch steamer ship in New York Harbor (seized as a neutral vessel during timeframe that Dutch ships under the modus vivendi agreement with the allies were threatened by German U-boats). The ship appears to be the Nieuw Amsterdam. (Lettering behind officials as they board is clearly "Amsterdam" but there is an obstructed word before that may be "Nieuw". Several Dutch ships were seized by U.S. military officials during this same month, including the Nieuw Amsterdam). Crew on the deck of the steamer ship Amsterdam. Dutch flag flying on the ship.
