The Americans #922 Private Gary D. Hoppe
U.S. Army, Cuba, 1898
After the declaration of war against Spain, effective
21 April 1898, infantry regular Hoppe soon found
himself in the tseaming jungles of C uba, ready to attack
the heavily fortified blockhouse atop San Juan Hill
overlooking Santiago. “The “Rough Riders” took
Kettle Hill, on 1 HJuly. Now it was the infantry’s turn.
After the order to fix bayonets, Hoppe surveyed
the hill in front, ready to move out in
this “splendid little war.”
