Interesting I have not seen these photos on any magic later slides or the steroview cards. I wonder what the source was-- some newer archive they did not exist in 1898 when the early magic latern slides & steroview cards were produced?

This one has some nice pictures: http://www.nramuseum.com/media/940555/g ... %20war.pdf

Many thanks Sir, I did not find those 2 links..

I do not know where these photos came from.. The Gatling gun photo is from the Philippines, or so the article states.

Everyone gives reference to the Spanish and their 7mm Mausers (and well earned).. But finding references to the Argentine 7.65 mausers which Spain purchased for the Melillan Rebellion and then shipped to Cuba, you do not find much reference to..

Many thanks for sharing these unusual photos. There were other arms used as well. My eyes are pretty well used as well, but it looks as if a Danish Krag. is featured in a studio shot about half way through the pictures. Thanks again. HAPPY 4TH !!
