Corporal Truman's War Story (1910) HD online
Corporal Trumanu0027s War Story
The story opens as Corporal Truman leaves home to join the G.A.R. parade, shows his reunion with his old comrades and the parade itself and the decorating of the graves and all the real happenings in a noted New England village. Following the memorial day exercises the veterans have a dinner and at this dinner Corporal Truman is asked to tell the story of his empty sleeve. The story is told in pictures and is one of the liveliest war incidents ever portrayed on a moving picture screen. It affords such a sharp contrast to the scenes which have gone before that when the picture again reverts to the banquet table and we see the veterans rising to cheer Corporal Truman and to join in his toast for the stars and stripes, we all feel like joining in the outburst of applause.
