could not read it. Lower right corner of mount is missing

PHOTOGRAPH OF SPAN-AM WOUND - Photograph on a post card type
format of a Span-Am veteran's back wound. Reverse of the card has a
pencil inscription "Back Wound / Santiago de Cuba / 1898".
Photographs showing combat wounds are choice for any war, this is the
first I've seen for the Span-Am War. There weren't that many
casualties - as wars go.

UNITED SPANISH WAR VETERANS CAMP BANNER -
PETER LEARY Jr. CAMP 4 - DEPARTMENT OF
MARYLAND
- (51" X 63" plus a 2" fringe on 3 sides) Large
silk and embroidered Post or Camp banner. The
embroidering is stunning but unfortunately the silk has
many fragile areas. There is a cloth matting that separates
the two sides of the flag and is sewn inside. The main color
of the silk is very light blue - the photos make it look more
grayish. The banner will not hang well due to the condition
of the silk but the previous owner had a great idea of
enclosing it within a manufactured table top, keeping the
banner laying flat. Again, if this interests you, be warned
the silk is very fragile in places - mainly around the borders.

SPANISH AMERICAN WAR CUBAN FLAG SOUVENIR - Approx. 5 3/4" x 8
3/4" - heavy silk flag. This has the light blue stripes which some flag
descriptions call the Spanish blue (when under Spanish Rule), in 1902 the
stripes were changed to a dark blue. Some descriptions of this type flag also
say this was more of the Cuban revolutionary flag, designed in the
mid-1800's but not really adopted by Cuba until after the Spanish rule was
expired from the island due to the War.
