Battle of Santiago de Cuba

Battle of Santiago

Above: A colorful painting of the Battle of Santiago de Cuba. American ships open fire on the fleeing Spanish Fleet shown on the left of the painting. To the right of the painting is the US fleet with the USS Oregon in the foreground. Within a matter of hours, the bulk of the Spanish Navy would be beached on the shores of Cuba and the United States would assume a leadership role on the world stage.


USS Oregon at Santiago

Above: A close-up of the USS Oregon. The Oregon was the only ship of the Indiana class to have a red, white, and blue bow shield instead of the more decorative figurehead.
