Honoring those who served in the Spanish American War

The Spanish-American War was a military conflict between Spain and the United States that began in April 1898. It ended quickly in August of that year when the Treaty of Paris was signed in December.

It was only 109 days after the outbreak of the war when the treaty was signed, which gave the United States control over the former Spanish colonies of Puerto Rico, the Philippines and Guam.
