U.S. cavalry supplies unloading at Tampa, Florida

SUMMARY From Edison films "war extra" catalog: Here is a freight train of thirty cars loaded with baggage and ambulance supplies for the 9th U.S. Cavalry. In the foreground a score of troopers are pulling, lifting and hauling an ambulance from a flat car. It slides down the inclined planks with a sudden rush that makes the men "hustle" to keep it from falling off. Drill engine on the next track darts past with sharp quick puffs of smoke. A very brisk scene. 50 feet. NOTES Copyright: Thomas A. Edison; 20May1898; 31431. Original main title lacking. Camera, William Paley.
