CIRCLES OF FIRE


Well I'm sure y'all have heard of, or read about the well thought-out plan of the American blockade of Cuba in April of 1898....and this blockade was like tossing acid into and already boiling pot of the relationship between the Spanish and Americans.  This all came about by the loss of the 'Maine' in February of this same year....
I could got into a lot of detail here....but I'll let the article do that....we guessed that the first big encounter of this whole mess would come about in the vicinity of San Juan, Puerto Rico....and we also thought that this important base of supplies should and could be taken before the enemy could make use of it...

Well that was excellent thinking....but it didn't turn out way...

If you wish to give this a read....and see pics of the line up of the big heavy hitters that took part in this..
