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]
