    SOLDIERS CHEER THE KING 1914 -1918. Rather than a 'King', I think the gentleman in the carriage is Theodore Roosevelt, who was President of the United States of America at the turn of the 20th century. Given his age in the clip, he was probably an ex-President when the footage was shot...most likely when the U.S.A. entered World War One in 1917.
