At Forest Hills, July 4, 1917, Teddy Roosevelt speaks in support of vigorous American war involvement and attacks conscientious objectors in an address at the Forest Hills Gardens railroad station; he later reviews the Forest Hills Rifle Club in a nearby field. Views of Roosevelt marching with Rifle Club members, speaking informally with individuals, standing at attention as Club marches past, and talking with an officer who may be Col. J. A. Delafield. Long shot of the speaker's balcony on the outdoor stairway of the Forest Hills Gardens railroad station, with Frederick Burgess, Bishop of Long Island, speaking and introducing Roosevelt; crowd cheers Roosevelt, who then begins to speak; panning shots of crowds.
