Field Marshal Lord Roberts, Commander in Chief of the forces in South Africa, 1902.Artist: Lafayette

Field Marshal Lord Roberts, Commander in Chief of the forces in South Africa, 1902. Sir Frederick, 1st Earl Roberts (1832-1914) was one of the foremost British military figures of Victorian times. Awarded the Victoria Cross in 1858 for his actions during the Indian Mutiny, Roberts is best known for his march to capture Kandahar during the Second Afghan War of 1878-1880. He was made Baron of Kandahar and Waterford in 1892 and promoted to Field Marshal in 1895. Roberts commanded the reinforcements sent to South Africa in 1900 after the setbacks of the early part of the Boer War. After his successful intervention in the South African campaign, he returned to England to become Commander-in-Chief of the British Army, a position which he held until 1904, when he retired from the army. Portrait from Celebrities of the Army, published by George Newnes, (London, 1902).

'Creelman, just after Dismounting from Horse...', Spanish-American War, 4 July 1898, (1899)

'Creelman, just after Dismounting from Horse...', Spanish-American War, 4 July 1898, (1899). 'Creelman, just after Dismounting from Horse which had Carried him from Hospital, Eleven Miles away, July 4th: Last Picture I Took in Cuba'. While a war correspondent for the "New York Journal", Canadian-American writer James Creelman (1859-1915) 'started off for El Caney, where he distinguished himself by very foolhardy work and reckless bravery; it was he who pulled down the Spanish flag from the block-house.' Creelman was permitted by the U.S. general in command to join the charge on a blockhouse occupied by Spanish troops. Advancing with US troops, and seeing the Spanish flag lying on the ground, Creelman seized it, feeling that the "Journal" should be the first to capture the enemy flag. He waved it in front of Spanish soldiers who responded with gunfire, wounding him in the arm and back. From "The Little I saw of Cuba" by Burr McIntosh, with photographs by the author. (In 1898, American actor and journalist William Burr McIntosh went to Cuba to cover the Spanish-American War for "Leslie's Weekly" as a reporter and photographer). [F. Tennyson Neely, London & New York, 1899]
