Description
In the Article of Capitulation, signed July 14th, 1898, by the United States and Spanish Commanders, it was decreed that all Spanish Troops to the number of about 23,000, occupying the Eastern Province of Santiago, should evacuate. This was at once carried into effect, at the expense of the United States Government, and this view shows the Spanish Soldiers leaving the Harbor of Santiago on transports from Spain.
This is a stereograph of Spanish troops leaving the Harbor of Santiago in Cuba. This was commanded by the United States Government. There are Spanish soldiers sitting and standing around on a dock, waiting to board ships back to Spain, which are pictured in the background. It is a medium shot. There is a strong depth of field and the way that the soldiers are standing forms a vanishing point. The image is black and white. Covered supplies are also on the dock.
Stereographs of the Spanish-American war were used to show Americans what the war overseas in Cuba looked like. Many American had never left their immediate area in 1898, so stereographs created a universal currency. People fortunate enough to own a stereoscope could now be provided with a visual of the first war where there was the first US volunteer cavalry.
