The Battle of the Aguadores.
The Battle of the Aguadores.
They fought in the Battle of the Aguadores July 1, 1898.

The skirmish on the banks of the Aguadores River was meant as a distraction for the attacks that would take place later that day at San Juan Hill and El Caney. The 33rd Michigan had to take a train to within one mile of the river. Both battalions couldn’t fit in the train at the same time so it had to be done in two trips giving the Spanish plenty of warning of the attack to come.

The attack began at 9:00am. The 33rd fought with small arms as shells sailed over their heads from naval bombardment. Given that the Spanish had plenty of time to dig in the naval attack had little affect and the Americans were being overpowered. They were under attack from directed artillery fire and, while the Spanish could maintain their concealment due to their use of modern Mauser rifles that used smokeless powder the Americans signaled their position every time they risked a shot.

At 1:30pm the Americans could not advance and they needed to resupply so the order was given to break off the attack. The Secretary of the Army would declare the battle a success claiming that the distraction worked but, there were differing opinions.

The Bermuda Triangle
The Bermuda Triangle
No TV show about the unexplained would be complete without a trip to the Bermuda Triangle. In season six Fox Mulder found himself in the Bermuda Triangle, traveling back in time to battle “dream Nazis”. In January of 1955 my 7th cousin 4 times removed, (Louis) Ward Wheelock, one of his sons and his wife vanished in the Bermuda Triangle along with four others and his 60ft yacht leaving no trace.

Scully was quick to point out that the Coast Guard had issued storm warnings and one of the Air Force pilots involved in the search pointed out that a wooden hulled boat lost in shallow water would be difficult to find because radar would be of little to no help.

Mulder countered that the crew was experienced and, had reported by radio that in spite of the bad weather they were doing fine. His main interest in this case came because of a mysterious newspaper clipping found in project “Blue Book” files.

The clipping, in poor condition, unfortunately did not identify the publication name or date. The only clue was a hand written “1955”. The article mentioned the search for an “unidentified object”. It states that after sighting the object the Air Force plane suffered “navigational difficulties” and lost the object. No other documents relating to this have been found in project Blue Book files.

Even without the disappearance of a wooden hulled boat that left no wreckage there is a mystery here. The article did not say unidentified “flying” object. Why was an Air Force unit tasked with investigating UFOs interested enough in this missing boat to save this clipping? Search pilots normally have the experience to recognize wreckage. What was this item that was reported as “unidentified”? What forces were at work that caused the “navigational difficulties”.

The Siege of Santiago.
The Siege of Santiago.
The Battles of San Juan Hill and El Carney were a success. The Americans captured the Spanish positions at both locations. On July 3, 1898, the siege of Santiago began. Company H of the Michigan 33rd was part of this. The generals figured an assault would bring massive casualties so the Americans dug in and stopped the flow of food and water into the city.

On July 4th there was a cease fire that allowed the evacuation of around 20,000 civilians. This also helped the Americans as they were able to bring in heavy weapons to support the operation. In the days that followed the Spanish took heavy casualties from Gatling guns, mortars and field artillery. On July 13th meetings began to discuss the terms of surrender. The Spanish would eventually agree to the term capitulation. The United States flag was raised over the fort at Santiago on July 17th. This picture misidentifies the date as the 13th.

The Souvenir Idea.
The Souvenir Idea.
Around 1894, the Brothers hired traveling salesmen specifically to market souvenir china wholesale to stores. Initially this happened in Illinois and nearby states but, eventually it would spread coast to coast. The salesmen carried pattern books that listed hundreds of varieties of pieces that were available.

Once the merchant selected a piece a scenic photo was sent to the European potteries which reproduced them as black decals. Workers applied the decal to the porcelain before the initial firing. The picture was then hand colored. Depending on the piece there may have been other hand painted decorations as well as lettering identifying the scene. Once the piece was fired the picture became a permanent decoration.

Latter when the technology had advanced far enough the decals were made in color eliminating the need for hand coloring.

The Union forces had to cross the Potomic River To get to the site of the Battle of Ball's Bluff. When they were pushed back there were too few boats to handle the retreat and the boats that were there were quickly overloaded and swamped. 223 Union soldiers were killed, 226 were wounded, and 553 were captured. Numbers that dwarf the losses suffered by the Confederate forces that day.
