Steamship with a deck full of American troops pulls into dock in 1919. Sailors walk down gangplank. Street scene, large American flags hang across street, men on horseback ride towards the camera. Large crowd cheers and waves small flags. A band parade down the street. Sailors stand on deck of a ship looking out at the water. President Woodrow Wilson walks between rows of sailors, climbs ladder to higher deck. Shot of ships sailing into harbor. President Wilson and lady get into open top car draped with flags. Sailors march down rejoicing street. Wilson’s car drives down street, he stands and waves at the crowds. Wilson gives speech to teeming crowd. He greets crowds. Wilson speaks from balcony. Newspaper reads ‘President suffers Nervous Breakdown’. An ill Wilson helped into car.
