Scenes of parade for George Dewey

Description:

New York gives Admiral Dewey, hero of Manila Bay, a lavish welcome September 27-30, 1899, and one of the highlights of that welcome is the land parade of September 30. Cheering crowds waving flags line the street as a battalion of sailors from the cruiser Olympia, Dewey's flagship, march by. Included in battalion are a color guard carrying the American flag and what is probably the battalion flag, men pulling a piece of artillery, and medical personnel. After the marching sailors, a long line of carriages follow. In the first carriage, drawn by four horses, ride Admiral Dewey and Robert A. Van Wyck, Mayor of New York City (1898-1902). Additional carriages containing dignitaries and naval officers follow. At ca. 53 ft. a carriage appears in which a hatless naval officer, who is probably Rear Admiral William T. Sampson, Commander of the North Atlantic Squadron, rides; the man wearing a top hat on the far side of the carriage is probably Thomas F. Woods, President of the Board of Aldermen of New York City.

Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to John Davis Long

Description:

President Roosevelt will appoint Admiral Sampson's son, Ralph E. Sampson, and the alternate. He has the highest regard for S.
