DESCRIPTION

War and Dissent:
U.S. in the Philippines 1898-1915

Opening: Behind the Scenes in the Gallery
Wednesday, October 22, at 7 pm

October 22, 2008 - February 22, 2009

The Spanish-American War of 1898 -- and the Philippine War that immediately followed it -- were turning points in the United States’ role in the world and had a great impact on the Presidio of San Francisco. The war in the Philippines also triggered strong dissent within the United States as the nation changed from a republic based on the consent of the governed to the possessor of a colonial empire.

This mixed media exhibit of photographs, San Francisco monuments, diaries, letters, political cartoons, recordings, maps, and flags looks at the Spanish-American and Philippine Wars from several points of view, including Filipino points of view, in nine themed galleries.
