Here is some information below, also would suggest reaching out to the County Historical Society. You may or may not have seen all of these photos but by the looks of it you have.

Thanks very much for your prompt reply I appreciate it.
I have seen the materials you posted, very cool, what I am actually trying to find are any motion picture films from Army Hospital 19 that may still exist.
I have located 2 newspaper articles from 1920, included here, perhaps the Red Cross might offer some guidance?
It would be awesome to locate this motion picture if it still exists.
Dear Mr. Doty,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series Historical Reports of General Hospitals, 5/1/1917 - 5/31/1920 in the Records of the Office of the Surgeon General (Army) (Record Group 112) that includes records of General Hospital No. 19 during WWI. For more information about these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at Archives2reference@nara.gov.
We also located the series Plans of Military Hospitals and Medical Facilities, 1894 - 1951 in Record Group 112 that includes a file unit titled Oteen General Hospital Number 19; North Carolina. For more information about the plans, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Cartographic (RDSC) at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Lastly, we located the series National Register of Historic Places and National Historic Landmarks Program Records, 2013 - 2017 in the Records of the National Park Service (Record Group 79) that includes a file unit National Register of Historic Places and National Historic Landmarks Program Records: North Carolina which contains the digitized North Carolina SP Oteen Veterans Administration Hospital Historic District.
