This is a picture of an American soldier in Cuba during the Spanish American War. Have you ever noticed that we never talk much about the Spanish American War? To me, it seems like the most popular war to study was the Civil War. World War II would come in second, as far as interest goes. Probably the Revolutionary War would be third, followed by World War I in forth place. Then you end up with the ones like the Mexican War, Spanish American War, and the War of 1812.
