Military Camp at Tampa, Taken from Train (1898)Documentary, Short · 20 May 1898
"A wide plain, dotted with tents, gleaming in white in the bright sunshine. Soldiers moving about everywhere, at all sorts of duties. In the background looms up a big cigar factory, giving the prosaic touch to the picture needed to bring out in sharp contrast the patriotism with which the scene inspires in us. The camera was on a rapidly moving train, so the panoramic view is a wide one, and remarkably brilliant."
