Come Five! Come Seven!, Spanish-American War, 18 June 1898, (1899). Creator

"Come Five! Come Seven!", Spanish-American War, 18 June 1898, (1899). American fighters playing dice on board ship, bound for Cuba. A "crap" game down in the hold, far from the eyes of the officers, was quite as exciting as one could wish to see. Very often as much as thirty or forty dollars would depend on whether it would "come five" or "come seven"; but nobody complained. The losers were jeered and ridiculed by their companions, but not a single display of ill-temper did I see in that entire body of men'. 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]

Lieutenant Lewis Reenlisting Thomas Dixon, Spanish-American War, 19 June 1898, (1899)

Lieutenant Lewis Reenlisting Thomas Dixon, Spanish-American War, 19 June 1898, (1899). American soldiers on board ship, bound for Cuba: I saw Lieutenant Lewis reading from a paper, his right hand lifted above his head, while before him was a sturdy-looking old soldier who also stood with hand
uplifted. Upon inquiry, I learned the cause of the scene, and asked them to hold their positions while I "snapped" them. Thomas Dixon had been in the regular army for twenty-one years, his time for retiring, or reenlisting, arrived that day, and he was taking his oath of allegiance to the Army of the United States for another term of three years. I recall having seen him several times at Daiquiri and Siboney, but I shall never see him again: he survived the fight before El Caney on July 1st and before San Juan on July 2nd, but in that scrimmage of the 10th, he was mortally wounded by a piece of flying shrapnel'.
