In addition to loss of life in battle, the soldiers faced the rages of malaria, yellow fever and dysentery. Colonel Roosevelt was a volunteer, not regular career army, so it was he who made the plea to Washington's leaders on behalf of the men. Bring them home! His Rough Riders returned to quarantine in Camp Wikoff, Montauk, Long Island. [Aug - Sept 1898]

The Twenty-fourth Infantry Regiment joined TR and his rough riders as they stormed the San Juan Ridge in Cuba
1 July 1898 - The assault is initially slowed as U.S. soldiers suffer from heat exhaustion, but effective fire from American Gatling guns and "the charge up San Juan Hill" by Theodore Roosevelt's Rough Riders secure the heights. U.S. troops on Kettle Hill briefly take Spanish artillery fire from San Juan Hill until it, too, is taken relatively easily. All U.S. objectives at San Juan Heights are secure.

The Buffalo Soldiers Were African-American Men Who Served in U.S. Army Units Created After The Civil War.During that conflict, despite strong opposition by most high-ranking officers, almost 200,000 black soldiers and sailors had served on the Union side, proving their ability time and again. As a result, the US government decided in 1867 to create several regular African-American military units, who would assist in the ongoing US expansion into Indian territories in the Plains and lands ...

White Americans grew up always hearing about Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders who took San Juan Hill and etc etc. But, we never hear about the Black American guys in the above photo. PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING WORDS VERY CAREFULLY : ".....Contrary to popular perceptions and many current books on U.S. history, the Spanish-Cuban-American War --- dubbed "a splendid little war" by Secretary of State John Hay --- was fought largely by African-American men. Of the Americans who died, MOST WERE AFRICAN-AMERICAN......" www.historyofcuba.com/history/scaw/scaw2.htm Speaking as an American White Man, I'm constantly amazed at what my fellow American White men are able to forget about (or totally deny), while at the same time telling America "citizens of color" --- who always helped to save our White American ass --- to "Go to hell". In many ways, the White man reminds me of the Japanese in their approach to dealing with history. "Forgetfulness" (which can also be intentionally implemented by those at the top) is very important for producing a [false] sense of "National Unity"; --- the survival of the social group being many times considered more important than the preservation of truth, which leads directly to a lack of giving thanks and credit where it is due. In many things (though not all), we are the "Children of Lies", and don't even know it. *************************************** "......On Tuesday, July 30, 2008, the U.S. House of Representatives issued an unprecedented apology to black Americans for the institution of slavery, and the subsequent Jim Crows laws that for years discriminated against blacks as second-class citizens in American society......"

Okinawa_Soba has a lot original images of the descendants of slaves in America, as well as several showing actual slaves who were "freed" during the America's Civil War. To match these images, he also has a box of 19th Century and early 20th Century images of "Black Africa", showing the tribes, roots, and culture that is now a universe away from the modern day existence of "African Americans". Behind the faces of these few images I'm posting here, are lives and experiences that most White people in America will never understand -- either then, or now. [This caption is the same for all.

Soldiers pose with Gatling Gun at Cavite. Philippine American War. The Gatling gun saw much action during the Spanish American War. It gained fame in Cuba giving support fire while Theodore Roosevelt and the Rough Riders assaulted San Juan Hill. Several examples were later shipped and used in the war in the Philippines.

The 1st United States Volunteer Cavalry, as is its correct name, was one of three Volunteer Cavalry regiments raised for the Spanish American War and the only one of the three to see action in 1898. The original nickname for the regiment was "Wood's Weary Walkers" after its first commander, Colonel Leonard Wood and in acknowledgment of the fact that despite being a cavalry unit they ended up fighting on foot as infantry.

cables had many key junctions. From the shore near Cienfuegos, cables connected to Havana, the port of Santiago, and then branched off to other Caribbean islands such as Jamaica. The three cables were cut, at sea in several places, disrupting much of the communications between the Spanish and their operations in Cuba. For the mission, the cruiser Marblehead, the gunboat Nashville, and the revenue cutter Windom were dispatched under the command of Captain Bowman H. McCalla.
