This page provides links to the content of the following exhibit:

Philippines:Spanish-American War, 1898 [Author: Alfred F. Kugel]. The United States declared war on Spain on 21st April 1898, and an expeditionary force was assembled in preparation to the occupation of the Philippines. An armistice was signed on 12th August, but a Filipino insurrection led by Emilio Aguinaldo required the presence of a substantial American military force, which finally defeated the rebels on 16th April 1902.

Electronic Content

There are three sets of files, each file containing the frames of this exhibit. It was necessary to split some of the files, due to their large size. The first set is made up of two PDF files, which can be read by the Adobe Acrobat Reader (tm). You should be able to read these files on any computer that can handle larger files and images. For more information about PDF files, please review the MPHS description page for PDF files.

The second set contains the same frames, made available for direct viewing on the Military Postal History Society website. Each of the two web pages has a table of contents to point to the various frame images. To view the exhibit, simply click on the HTML links below.

The third set contains the same exhibit content, but stored as web page files that you can download to your computer/phone/pad. This type of content is called "website-in-a-box". Once you have downloaded the single ZIP file, you can view the exhibit offline on your computer, pad, or phone. Please review the MPHS web page describing the use of ZIP archives.
