About this Item

The author was a chaplain in the U. S. Army during the Spanish-American War and first went to Cuba as a member of a special committee to carry supplies to sick soldiers, establish a relief agency, and report on the actual needs of the men. The need for the proper burial of fallen soldiers came quickly to light what with the jungle, heat and heavy rains impacting the sites usually quite near where the bodies were found. President McKinley then gave an executive order to permanently mark the grave sites. After a chapter on how the survivors decorated their comrades graves, the author then goes into a history of the battles and battlefields and remarks on the known deaths. Two panoramic fold-out photos of battlefields are included along with other photos and illustrations. An Index of the Fallen (Officers, enlisted men, and other persons who were killed in action or died in Cuba during the War with Spain) includes names, rank, company, regiment, date of death, and page number if mentioned in book. The book has some edgewear on the spine ends and corners with slight fraying and the front cover is rubbed. Gilt lettering is not worn badly. The hinges were cracked and thus weakened the binding but it has been repaired with library hinge tape and is now very stable. Bookseller Inventory # 001820
