Philadelphia: J. Hoover & Sons, 1898. 1st Edition. Print. Good / Frame - 20th C. Item #001207
Chromolithograph, 27 1/2" x 20", in contemporary frame, 40" x 32". Minor damage at lower left corner, with some flaking of the paper. Slight age-toning to the colors. Framed in an elaborate gilt composite contemporary frame with acrylic glaze. *** In this artistic composition of the events in Santiago, the oval profile portrait inset in the upper right corner depicts U.S. Rear Admiral Schley, the victor of the sea battle. Schley was originally not included in Admiral Sampson's reports of the battle, due to ill feelings between the two men. However, the truth of who was in command of the actual battle were soon known, and Schley became a national hero, with a promotion to rear Admiral. ***.
