Battle of San Juan Hill, 1898

Entitled: "Charge of the Rough Riders at San Juan Hill." Reproduction of painting by Frederic Remington showing Theodore Roosevelt, on horseback, with his men running close behind him; some men are being shot while others lay dead in the grass. The Battle of San Juan Hill (July 1, 1898) was a decisive battle of the Spanish-American War. The San Juan heights was a north-south running elevation about two kilometers east of Santiago de Cuba, Cuba. The names San Juan Hill and Kettle Hill were given to the location by the Americans. This fight for the heights was the bloodiest and most famous battle of the war. It was also the location of the greatest victory for the Rough Riders, as claimed by the press and its new commander, the future vice-president and later president, Theodore Roosevelt. The American press at the time overlooked the fact that the Buffalo Soldiers of the 10th Cavalry and 24th Infantry Regiments had actually done much of the heaviest fighting. The Spanish-American War was a conflict in 1898 between Spain and the United States, the result of US intervention in the Cuban War of Independence.
