jul 1, 1898 - Corned beef at sea stunk so that we had to throw it into the sea, heavy rains pouring down, no tents for cover, standing in trenches in a foot of water and mud, day and night. The American army captured San Juan Hill and other fortified positions around the City. The Spanish fleet tried to escape from Santiago harbor, American gun boats closed in. One after another Spanish vessels were crippled and sunk by gunfire. American forces invaded Puerto Rico very easily took it.

Description:

Corned beef at sea stunk so that we had to throw it into the sea, heavy rains pouring down, no tents for cover, standing in trenches in a foot of water and mud, day and night. The American army captured San Juan Hill and other fortified positions around the City. The victory made Roosevelt a hero though in truth the Tenth Negro Calvary deserved much credit. The Spanish fleet tried to escape from Santiago harbor, American gun boats closed in. One after another Spanish vessels were crippled and sunk by gunfire. American forces invaded Puerto Rico very easily took it.
