Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Spanish-American War took place between the United States and Spain from April to August of 1898. On 1898 February 15, an American battleship, the U.S.S. Maine, exploded in the harbor of Havana, Cuba, killing over 250 men. Though the cause of the explosion was unknown, many blamed Spain, who controlled the Cuban waters. At the same time, Cuban revolutionaries lobbied the U.S. Congress to intervene in their attempts to gain independence from Spain. Finally, the United States declared war on Spain in April, citing Spain's inability to guarantee peace and stability in its colony. Troops were sent to Cuba, as well as to the Spanish colonies of the Philippines, Puerto Rico, and Guam in May of 1898. After some months, Spanish forces were incapcitated, and on 1898 August 12, a cease-fire was agreed upon by both sides. The Treaty of Paris officially ended the conflict in December (though it was not ratified by the U.S. government until February 1899), giving the United States control over Puerto Rico, the Philippines, and Guam. The United States also guided the process of independence for Cuba, which was achieved in 1902.

In August of 1898, the United States sent troops to occupy the Philippines. Philippinos resisted American occupation of their country, as they had declared independence from Spain in June of that year and had originally considered the United States an ally in their fight for self-government. Warfare broke out between the Americans and the Filipinos, and the Philippine-American War, as it was called, lasted from 1899 to 1902. Sporadic fighting continued between the two sides until 1913.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

This collection contains 21 boxes of photographs relating to the Spanish-American War of 1898 and its aftermath, the Philippine-American War of 1899-1902. Though the bulk of the images date from this time period, there are also photographs in this collection from as early as 1895 and as late as 1932. These photographs were taken and collected by American soldiers, sailors, and nurses who served during wartime.

Loose images depict military scenes at home and abroad. Subjects include land and sea battles, military fortifications, naval ships, and United States regiments (including the 2nd Oregon Volunteer Infantry Regiment) and encampments in Cuba and the Philippines, as well Army posts and military hospitals in the United States. These include a series of photographs taken or collected by John Wells Gemmill, depicting Company K of the 2nd United States Infantry Regiment in Cuba during the war. There are also portraits of enlisted American soldiers and sailors, veterans, and some doctors and nurses who served during wartime. Other loose photographs depict views of the countries and towns abroad in which the soldiers served and traveled, including China, Cuba, Japan, the Philippines, and Puerto Rico, as well as their native peoples.

11 photograph albums contain images taken by professional photographers, as well as collected and taken by soldiers and sailors who served during the war from 1898-1903. Most notable are an album of photographs of United States soldiers in Cuba, taken in 1898 by John C. Hemment for William Hearst and presented to the U.S.S. Oregon in 1901; two albums depicting the surrender of Philippino military leader Juan Cailles in 1901; and one album of photos taken by an unidentified sailor serving on the U.S.S. Monterey from 1902-1903. Other albums depict military scenes and landscapes in Cuba and the Philippines, military posts in the United States, and U.S. soldiers at home and abroad.

Other photographers include Spanish-American war nurse Clara Chatfield Ott; soldiers Emil Scherbler, Amos Patriquin, and Edward McConnell; and stereoview photographers John F. Jarvis (Washington, D.C.), Benjamin West Kilburn (Littleton, N. H.), Benjamin Lloyd Singley, Strohmeyer & Wyman (New York, N.Y.), and Underwood & Underwood (New York, N.Y.), among many other photographers. Also note that many of the photographs in this collection are identified with donor names and museum numbers from the U.S.S. Oregon Museum. The museum donated the bulk of this collection to the Oregon Historical Society.

This collection includes photographic prints, panormic photographs, photographic postcards, photomechanical prints, stereographs, and glass lantern slides.
