The Spanish-American War

A Conflict In Progress

Streaming Video - 2006
Rate this:
This program examines the conduct of the war, from Theodore Roosevelt's Rough Riders, to the defeatist attitude of Spanish commander Admiral Cerveras, to Cuban General Gomez and his decision to side with the Americans. Actual footage taken at the battles of Las Guasimas, El Caney, and San Juan Hill supports excellent historical commentary, including photos, sketches, and firsthand accounts of the war by publishing mogul William Randolph Hearst. The precise sequence of political and military events leading to the Spanish defeat is carefully traced up to the Treaty of Paris, where Spain relinquishes all rights to Cuba, the Philippines, Guam, and Puerto Rico.
