In Photos: The 1898 Spanish-American War from the Florida Shore

(6 years ago)
July 12, 2011 /Photography News/  In 1898 U.S. attention focused on Florida as the Spanish-American War began on April 25. The port city of Tampa served as the primary staging area for U.S. troops bound for the war in Cuba. The arrival of over 30,000 troops, including Lieutenant Colonel Theodore Roosevelt and his Rough Riders cavalry unit, changed Tampa from a small town to a city. Florida, the closest state to the Caribbean and home to a large Cuban immigrant population, became the setting for much of the action in Cuba's fight for independence from Spain. Although the main issue was Cuban independence, the ten-week war was fought in both the Caribbean and the Pacific. July 12, 1898 marks the end of the Spanish-American War, with the Americans defeating the Spaniards.The images included in this set have been selected from the Photographic Collection of the State Library and Archives of Florida.The Florida Photographic Collection contains more than 157,000 images, representing the most complete portrait of Florida available.Courtesy of the Florida Photographic Collection.Street of Company E at the Rough Riders' camp : Tampa, Florida, 1898. 1 photonegative : b&w ; 4 x 5 in.
