A Fine copy in a contemporary blue leather binding, gilt stamped spine and front cover with marbled endpapers. After the American Civil War, the United States Army was weakened and left with little manpower when a call for Cuban independence from Spain arose. As a result, President William McKinley called upon 1, 250 volunteers to assist in the war efforts. Roosevelt's Rough Riders is the name bestowed on the 1st United States Volunteer Cavalry, one of three such regiments raised in 1898 for the Spanish-American War and the only one of the three to see action. Colonel Roosevelt and the Rough Riders played a key role in the outcome of the Spanish-American war by serving as the catalyst with other American units on constricting the ring around the city of Santiago. The ultimate goal of capturing San Juan Hill was from that strategic position to move downhill and take Santiago de Cuba, a strong point for the Spanish army. Theodore Roosevelt has written a compelling history of the Rough Riders including his personal involvement with the unit.
