that hour Chaffee's wen who charging

aid insisted, Raying, "I!ut I iniiKt de

"Yon will have to deliver it on tho

July 1 At that hour tho divisions of
Wheeler and Kent were busily digging
trenches on tho captured crest of Huu
Juun ridge. Tho story of Lnwton's fur
ther adventures in getting into tiie poi
tion assigned him will be taken up after
a description of the tattle of Wheeler
and Kent on tho American left. The

applicable in war, about the best laid

Han Juan ridge a day ahead of time a
As the cavalry division wan the next
in order after Lawton, from right to
left, when the urmy faced Santiago,
and wa the first to score a success on
the Ban Juan height, it story should
next be told.
In the inarch down from El Poso to
the crowing of the Han Juan, the brigade
I of General burimor, then commanded by
jiouteuaut Colonel Henry Carroll of
.10 fcixtn cavalry, had the lead. At
that time Bumner wus in temporary
oommaud of tho division, The strength
of Carroll'! brigade that day in the
fighting line waa about 000. The Ninth
cavalry, colored, under Lieutenant Colo
nel J. M. Hamilton, ou the right of the
brigade, had but one squadron in the
fight. It waa commanded by Major A.
D. Dim in I ck. The Third cavalry win
led by Major II. W. Wessels, ton of
Major General Wessels, diHtinguiHhed
in tho civil wur. The First squadron
was commanded by Major Henry Jack
son and tho becoud by Charles Morton.
The fciixth cavalry, bumuer's own regi
ment, was led by Major T. C. Lcbo.
With tho tixeeptlou of Wessels, all
squadron and regimental oflloois, like
tho division und brigade leaders, were
war tried veteran. Hamilton had
served in the Thirty-third New York,
Limwiek iu the Fifth New York cav
alry, Jackmu in the regular cavalry and
Morton in tho Twenty-fifth Missouri as
a boy, afterward polishing off at Went
Point. I-eLo served through the war in
the First Pennsylvania cavalry. All

The first order beard In this brigade
came from Major Weasels to bis own
regiment. It was, "Tho Third is order
ed to go through this brush)" Immedi
ately Major Jackson's squadron deploy
ed as skirmishers and attempted to nd
vflneo. Morton's squadron deployed 200
yards in tiie rear as support. Major
Weasels observed, "I don't see how wo
can do it, but we will if we can."
Plunging into tho brush, the men found
that it was only a hedge on the border
of an open field. When the skirmishers
got through, they called out that there
was cavalry moving across the front.
That mude it necessary to draw the line
Through the openings in the trees,
Captain Morton and others saw the left
of the Han Juan iutreuohments and
Hpaniardswitb guns at hand 000 or 700
yards away, looking at the American
linn, At this time the dynamite and the
Ilotehkiss guns in rear of the brigade
opened fire on the Bpanlards. The dyna
mite gun was choked with tho first car
tridge, and tho cavalry men say that the
Hotchkiss gun wus silenced by the
Spaniards, who then turned their rifles
and sbrupne) upo;i the cavalrymen. In
this plight the cavalry remained an
hour and a half, subjected to constant
Volley firing and to shrapnel. The oil!
cers of tho brigade estimated that tho
cavalry divixion suffered from 76 to 90
per cent of its casualties around that
crossing. Dead and wounded were
brought there through ranks of men,
only a few of whom bad been under fire
before. Hays Captain Morton, a veteran
of !! battles, "It was enough to rattle
tho bravest, but not an officer or soldier
left tho position, except to help tho
To some old soldiers it may seem
strange tlmt at Huhtiago fighting men
left the ranks to help the wounded, But
that is uoaording to the new order of
things. Kvery man has a first aid pack
age in his kit, and it is part of his duty
to apply it when u comrade is stricken
down, If it had not been for this, tho
mortality at Bunthigo would have been
terrible. The first aid burnluge stops
the flow of blood und keeps the wound
clean, also giving the patient relief and
hope, which conduce to recovery. Iu
general, officers criticized I he "shame
ful neglect of wounded" at Huntiago,
The next order to this brigade was
brought by aids who came to Major
Wessels and told bim that the brigade
was to advance, They could give no
definite instructions. Wessels said thut
bo wus not in command of the brigade,
but that Colonel Carroll was und was
somewhere ou the ground. The aids
discussed among themselves what was
to be douo, und finally agreed that the
brigade hud on order to udvance.
The cavulry troops spoken of before
as1 being in front of Carroll's brigade
evidently belonged to Wood's brigade.
In attempting to move out of the range
of the Hpaniurds' missiles and also to
find clear ground to form in the differ
ent regiments got out of line, a matter
which caused some confusion to the bri
gade commanders. It was this state of
things which led to tho assertion that
the general officers were weak at Han
Juan ridge. The fact is thut the ground
was unsuitable for forming und charg
ing in brigade columns. The regiments
kept well together until they started to
go up the hill, when some commands
deflected to the right or to the left, ac
cording as they saw favorable ground
or a Hpauish position to strike at.
Ueueral Humm rsa.vs that the cavalry
division was ordered to take position iu
tho road near the crossing of Han J nan;
that ho formed his line, and, being fired
upon, said to a representative of Gen
eral Bhafter who was present: "We
cannot stay here without heavy loss.
We mint go back or go forward." Tho
general added significantly, "Forward
we went I"
There was no lack of fearless and
capuble men to carry orders to tho com

J. 11. Durst, the udjutant general of the
cavalry division, was seen ull along the

ENT'S infantry
got tho bloodiest
end of it in the
encounter with
smokeless now-
d e r , blind
trenches and
Mansers on Han
its bivouac near
JAVA Pomo, but after
a short march
hud to give tho
cavulry the right
of way, This re
sulted in bring
ing the leading regiments abreast of the
Tenth and First cuvalry, the reur of
Wheeler's division. W'lieii General Kent
was afked ut Montauk to tell of the
storming of Kan Jnun heights, he said,
" We were ordered to tuke the heights,
and we took them," In mo saying tho
general plunged into the thick of tho
buttle of words which has been stirred
up over this vi ry point of ordcts. Yet
he paid a high tribute to the lino offi
cers und men. lie said thut it was a
soldiers' fight. R'gliiietitul command
ers did nobly, but, owing to the ground,
could not see their full communds.
Company officers hud to uct, and did,
with good effect.
Kent's story is thut at 7 o'clock on
the morning of July 1 lie went to tho
bill where Grimes' battery wus in posi
tion before Grimes njened fire, and
there Colonel MtClernund, representing
General rihufter, pointed out a green
hill in the distance us Kent's objective,
on the left, he being instructed to keep
his right ou the main road leading to
Santiago, The green knoll is on tho
same rhlgo as the Hau Juun blockhouse,
some hundred yards south of that point,
which is near the roud, and thereforo
tho objective of Kent's right flank.
Kent had already sent Hawkins' bri
gade forward, and shortly after Grimes'
buttery opened, which wus before 8
o'clock, he rode ou und came up with
Hawkins and his leuding regiment, the
Sixth infantry. At thut point he wus
ordered to give the cavulry tho right of
way, which caused a delay of his ad
vunee 40 minutes. During that delay
Hawkins and Kent went to the front
under the flro of sharpshooters and
crossed tho main ford of Hau Juun riv
er, already reached by tho advance
guard of the cavulry division, the Ninth
regiment. They looked through the
fringe of trees and saw the enemy's po
sition. Hawkins thought ho could torn
the enemy's right ut Han Juan, but
Kent did not agree with him and de
cided to put two brigades into column
for direct attack. Going backward to
hurry his troops, he met them just as
they cumo under a heavy fire not only
from tho front, but from tho dense
thicket on tho banks und from sharp
shooters iu trees in the rear of the mov
ing troops.
The balloon wus abreust of the heud
of his division, and shrapnel aimed at
it fell among his men. The observers in
the balloon pointed out to Kent u trail
parallel with the road on its left. The
Sixth and Sixteenth regiments were al
ready in the road, past the forks of the
trail, and Keut went baek and directed
the Seventy-first regiment into the trail,
to lie followed by Wikoff'a brigade, in
support of Hawkins. Tho Seventy-first
became a stumbling block Iu tho way of
Wikoff's udvuneo, and it was noon
when the head of Wikoff's brigade
rem lied the fording place.
When the Hixtb regiment reached
the ford, Hawkins was there and said
to 'Colonel Kgbert, its commauder,
"HoiiiHwhal beyond here you emi get
an enfilade lira on those wot Its, aud
Lii uteuuiit Grd will show you where
tu go Iu. " Thi works on Still Juan

the road an hour, partially carrying
out Hawkins' orders to enfilade the
enemy. His men were somewhat shel
tered hy a hedge and a roadNide ditch,
but fioni tiieir position could only ob
tain an oblique fire ugainst the hill. In
order to get a more effective fire tho
colonel decided to tuke his regiment
across the road into tho high grass and
weeds beyond. A Cuban negro, who
proved to be one of the heroes of Hau
Juan heights, cut several openings in
the fences with a machete. Through
those openings the regiment advanced,
and, lying down in the tall grass,' open
ed a steady flro ou the enemy's works,
both by file and volley.

In this plain languago a soldier tells
the story of the first encounter with the
Spaniards at San Juun blockhouse, Tho
range was less than 000 yards, The Sixth
lost the highest percentage of any regi
ment at Santiago, und the greater part
of it wus incurred iu this attempt to
reduce tho Hpunish fire by answer in
kind. Colonel Kgbert, and Captain W.
II. IL Crowell, commanding one bat
talion, were, war veterans, Kgbert of
tlio regular service und Crowell of the
First Ohio, light artillery.
With tho Sixteenth a support the
Sixth held on. The Cuban negro drifted
over to the Sixteenth, thinking perhaps
thut it wus about to leud a fresh attack.
Wikoff, with the Ninth, Thirteenth
und Twenty-fourth regulars, was then
passing the Sun Juun ut the trull ford
and pioving thut "Hell's Crossing" de
serves its ghastly namo, The cavalry at
this hour, stU buck behind the fringe
of trees, thought thut the infantry had
been repulsed in an attack on the block
house. Pel hups others took the sume
view of it, for soon after thut tho sick
i und pain racked leader on Kl Poso bill
'sent urgent orders to Lawton to leave
I Kl Cuney and move to his position as
planned on El Caney roud heights,
north of Hun Juun ridge. Twice Sliuf tor
sent this order, proof thut in spite of
bodily torture the bruin hud a full grasp
of the situation at the front. Luwton,
striking on the flunk of Hun Joun ridge
soon ufter midday, might huvo made
tho buttle a masterpiece,
Meunwhilo the artillery bud not been
idle in its efforts to help Kent aud Sum
ner reduce the Sun Jnun stronghold.
Grimes' buttery hud a perfect view of
the blockhouse at 2,000 yurdsaud struck
it at the third shot, say ut 8 o'clock.
The Spaniards replied, and at the
fourth shot killed two gunners and
wounded four at one piece. Shaffer's
adjutunt general, Colonel MoClernond,
staid with tho battery und directed Its
firing. He had a telephono wire to
headquarters. Grimes once caught tight
of the flush of a Spanish gun and, with
thut sole guidance, the Spanish using
( smokeless powder, pounded away for
threo hours with intervals, The black
powder of his own gnus hung like a
cloud about them, muking a perfect
target for tho Spanish artillerists. Some
of their fire wus from butteries in their
second lino, neur the city. Tho balloon
truilcd along his linn of fire and stopiied
action for a time. Another rifle battery,
nndor Captain Parkhurst, got into posi
tion neur Grimes, ready to unite its fire
with his at tho supreme moment.

Gatllng outfit have been mentioned,
