The Other Spanish American War

Speaker: James Moody

Many people associate the Spanish American War with Teddy Roosevelt and the Rough Riders charging up San Juan Hill, in Cuba. Fewer people know that the Spanish American War was fought in the Western Pacific, in places like Guam, and the Philippines. Local historian James Moody knows a lot about that part of the war, and the conflict that raged afterward in what some people call the Moro War, or the Philippines Insurrection, because one of his ancestors fought there. Come listen to James talk about this conflict, with its very personal associations.

The presentation will last about 60 minutes, from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM at the Marshall House, on Officer’s Row. This no admission fee. The Marshall House is located at 1301 Officer's Row, Vancouver, WA 98661. To get there from Interstate 5, take Exit 1c. Head east on Mill Plain Blvd to the first light, then go south (right) on Fort Vancouver Way to the traffic circle. Take the third exit, east on Evergreen Blvd to the second parking lot. The Marshall House is opposite this parking lot on the North side of Evergreen Blvd.
