The Spanish-American War in Motion Pictures

This collection from the American Memory Project at the Library of Congress brings together 68 motion pictures, produced between 1898 and 1901, of the Spanish-American War and the Philippine Revolution. In a very real way, the Spanish-American War was the first United States war in which the motion picture camera played a role. Visitors can look over the "Featured Items" to get a flavor of the works here, which include Roosevelt's Rough Riders and Pack mules with ammunition on the Santiago Trail, Cuba. In Articles and Essays, visitors can read though thoughtful meditations such as, "The War in Cuba" and “‘Remember the Maine’: The Beginnings of War.”
