WOMEN OF THE SPANISH-AMERICAN WAR:
Fighters, War Correspondents, and Activists

"It has been a splendid little war, begun with the highest motives, carried on with magnificent intelligence and spirit…,” U.S. Secretary of State John Hay

It’s mindboggling to hear anyone label a war “splendid,” but a high-ranking American official used that term to describe the Spanish-American War in 1898. If any slivers of splendor existed in the grim brutalities of war, they were frequently on display in the remarkable actions of brave women who nursed their fallen warriors, reported conditions on the battlefields, fought on behalf of fervently-held causes, and protested questionable actions of their governments. In the quest for shining examples of splendor, high motives, and magnificent intelligence and spirit during the war, the accomplishments of some extraordinary individuals have been overlooked and deserve recognition. Women of the Spanish-American War brings to light their stories of relentless courage and selflessness.
