Storyline

The picture starts with a review of troops in dress parade. Headed by the famous Fort Leavenworth military band, several thousand of Uncle Sam's blue clad defenders, marching in orderly array, pass the camera. We next have a review of the cavalry, followed by a realistic charge on the enemy. The Fort Leavenworth cavalry is known as the best trained troops in the world. Wall scaling is an interesting feature and shows a squad of infantry climbing a 15-foot wall. It is astounding how easily and quickly these athletic young fellows clear the obstacle. The building of a strong and serviceable pontoon bridge is next shown. Planks placed across mud scows make a crossing strong enough to support an entire battalion of soldiers. The building and destroying of a "spar" bridge is as interesting.

Desperate charges which look much too real to be comfortable
20 February 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A satisfying picture of a review of United States troops at Fort Leavenworth, including some apparently desperate charges which look much too real to be comfortable. Then there is a display of work by the cavalry which is sure to please, since it introduces a number of exceedingly difficult, not to say dangerous, drills and acrobatic work which is a bit trying to the nerves even in a picture. A picture of this character has its uses in acquainting the people who see it with the army much more graphically than could be done in any other way. Actual representation is much more pleasing, and, withal, much more instructive, than many pages of description, no matter how illuminating the English in which it is written. - The Moving Picture World, January 29, 1910
