  1. Spanish Misrule Cartoon from Puck • This is a political cartoon from the mid-1890s depicting how Spanish misrule in Cuba was fanning the flames of rebellion.

  2. Illustration by Grant Hamilton, Judge, July 9, 1898

What helps to account for African-American leaders’ divisions in their view of the Spanish-American-Cuban war?

Soon, however, the Americans and Filipinos started fighting each other at the cost of at least 200,000 Filipinos’ lives, as well as 4,200 Americans’ lives. What happened? How did the United States justify continued intervention in the Philippines? What questions regarding the nature of U.S. expansion abroad did the U.S.-Philippine War raise? From waterboarding to the murky, ever-changing war aims and an increasingly dismayed and disinterested public, the Philippine War reveals some fairly uncomfortable parallels with a certain contemporary war – or does it? Something to think about…
