When Albert Henry Savage Landor

the Forbidden Land, the fact was duly
chronicled, and the London press aso

and manifold suffering". The Melbourne
Times received but a short note, which
"A. Savage Landor arrived in St.
Petersburg today from Tibet after
suffering greatly at the hands of the
This was meager enough, but the
news editor was equal to the occasion.
The following morning, among the
other matters of news, the readers of
The Times found this startling informa
tion: "A savage landor got into St. Peters
burg -yesterday, and the people of the
city were terrified. After considerable
difficulty the beast, which came from
Tibet, was captured, taken to a re

said that this is the first animal of the
sort ever seen in Russia. How he reach
ed the city after his fights with the na

unknown country, is a mystery."

a critical pen,
looking for truth
' to exploit and
having outside as
well as inside
s t a t e in ents to
draw npon, cannot take Roosevelt as
the sole and the infallible authority
upon the battle career of his regiment.
From the accounts popularly accept
ed of the charge up San Jnan hill one
gleans that the rough riders, led by
their colonel, initiated and carried
home the charge, clinching the victory
by heroic defense of the crest. This is
not the view of the officers and soldiers
outside of the rough riders. The regi
ment did well for a volunteer regiment
unusually well bnt deserves no more
praise than the others. After describing
the march down the road to the San
Juan river Roosevelt tells in two offi
cial reports and in his magazine narra
tive how the charge originated and the
part the rough riders took in it In his
magazine story he says "I' sent mes
senger after messenger to try to find
General Sumner or General Wood and
get permission to advance, and was
jast about making up my mind that in
the absence of orders I had better
'march toward tbe gnus." when Lieu
tenant Colonel Dorst came riding up
through the storm of bnllets with the
welcome command 'to move forward
and support the regulars in the assanlt
in the hills in front.' "
Roosevelt says that the instant he re
ceived the order his "crowded hour be
gan." He formed tbe regiment in col
umn of Trctips, deployed in skirmishing
order, and took his place with the rear.
Somehow the reason given is not clear
he forged his way to the front of his
own regiment. The Ninth cavalry was
in frcnt, the First regulars in the left of
the rongh riders. In his narrative the
colonel says. "And these went up 'Ket
tle' hill with my regiment. " "Kettle'
hill is the name given to the outlying
spur of the ridge which was first cap
tured Roosevelt's first report is not so
clear as his second, anil this last states
distinctly "We charged the blockhouse
and intrenchments on the hill to our
right against a heavy fire It was taken
in good style, the men of my regiment
thus being the first to capture any for
tified position and to break through the
Spanish lilies. "
This statement is in the report dated
July 20, and from similar verbal ones
probably originated the extravagant
claims made for the rongh riders. Get
ting into lositiou. Roosevelt says he
waved his hat and gave the order to
charge the hill in front that is, "Ket
tle" hill. This is his literal statement
of what followed
"Out of my sight, over on the right,
Captains McBlain and Taylor of the
Ninth made up their minds independ
ently to charge first about this time,
and almost at the same moment Colo
nels Carroll and Hamilton, who were
off, I believe, to my left, where we
could neither see them nor hear their
men, gave the order to -advance. But of
all this I knew nothing at the time.
The whole line, tired of waiting and
eager to close with the enemy, was
straining to go forward, and it seems
that different parts slipped the leash at
almost the same moment. The First
cavalry came up just behind and partly
mise'd with my regiment and the
Ninth." Having previously stated in
this narrative that the Ninth and First
went up "Kettle" hill with the rough
riders, it is clear that Roosevelt claimed
too much in his official report in sayirig,
"My regiment thns being the first to
capture any fortified position."
The real difiicnlty is to find among
all the statements just what the rough
riders did as a regiment. There was
gallant work and heavy loss. Roosevelt
carries the narrative to a critical point,
then rambles off into statements of
what the Ninth or Tenth or First or
Tbhd- regulars did. One may glean
from his account that the Tenth cavalry
actually led the charge on "Kettle'
hill, but farther on the verbose colonel
says that the guidons of some of his
Troops were first planted on the hilL In
the same sentence he says. "On the ex
treme right of the hill, at the opposite
end from wheie we struck it. Captains
Taylor and McBlain and their men of
the Ninth weie first np " Now the
right of the hill was where the house,
miscalled a blockhouse by Roosevelt,
ttood. It was -not a blockhouse. There
were some trenches, lint the Spaniards
made no defense. The loss sustained by
the charging columns was dne to firing
from the main ridge. "Kettle" hill was
not in the Spanish line of defense, but
was an outwork, and its capture did
not constitute a break in the enemy's
line, as claimed by Roosevelt.
Thecaptnreqf "Kettle" hill was gal
lantly done, and it was timely, for it
proved a vantage ground for attack on
the real Spanish positions beyond it
Bnt the rough riders seem to have had
no specially brilliant part in it. The
regiment's place was on the right of
the second lina Roosevelt and the two
companies with him went np the left
or southeast knee of the hill: hence
marched obliquely across the field. It
was said in camp that Roosevelt lost his
bearings, and, mistaking San Jnan fort
for the red house on "Kettle" hill,
practically abandoned his regiment.
For this reason he deals in generalities
in his report, and really accounts for
but fonr of his eight trocps, two only
of these being with him "personally."
The most important events of the day
for the cavalry followed the capture of
"Kettle" hill. Roosevelt's first report
says: "When the men got their wind,"
we charged again and carried the sec
ond line of intrcnchuiuiits with a rush
Swinging to the left, wo then drove thu
Spaniards over the brow of the chain of
hills fronting on Santiago." Bearing in
mind that this ia. the official report of
5 fe- T J, VnniL
Wrrr-fi? J&fff S
- " rtf te-l2Jk V
the rough riders by their commanding
officer, it most be taken as meaning
that the rough riders "carried the sec
ond line" and "drove the Spaniards
over the brow." Ia his second report
Colonel Roosevelt says that after Fort
San Juan was taken a large force was
assembled on "Kettle" hill, not only of
his own regiment, but of the Ninth and
portions of other regiments. This is
well known. He then states: "We then
charged forward nnder a heavy fire
across the valley against the Spanish in
trenchments on the hill in rear of San
Jnan bill. This we also took, capturing
several prisoners." He received orders
to halt and hold the crest At the time
he had fragments Of the Sixth cavalry
and an occasional infantryman under
him, 300 or 400 men all told. The rough
riders numbered 042 and lost 87 in all,
making abont 47o on duty But there
were other troopers than the Sixth and
rough riders with Roosevelt at the time
Either Roosevelt is confused as to the
order cf events or he and his rough rid
ers had nothing to do with the capture
of the second ridge, or San Juan hilL
He places his rush forward after Par
ker's Gatlings opened on Fort San Jnan
At that hour the cavalry advance was
rushing along the swale toward the sec
ond ridge. Roosevelt says that when he
saw the Spaniards abandon Fort San
Juan he called upon his men to charge
the bili? in front, that is, north San
Juan ridge. His details of what follow
ed, coming from the colonel of the regi
ment reported to have done wonders
that day, need no comment. Roosevelt

(Roosevelt) might make the charge.
According to Rootevelt, Sumner told
bim to go ahead, and he (Sumner)
would see that the men followed. Just
what men he meant is uncertain. Sum
ner had already ordered the First caval
ry and battalion of the Third to re
main on "Kettle" hill. The Sixth was
moving up the hill in touch with the
infantry, and a battalion of the Third
was climbing theslope in front of "Ket
tle" bill while Roosevelt was going
through these motions evidently to get
bis own regiment into shape.
Roosevelt finally got to the crest of
San Jnan ridge Meanwhile the Third
cavalry had formed a line in the V
shaped ridge or salient, subsequently
called Rough Riders' hill, but which
they did not capture. Roosevelt says he
had a mixed force 'and about 50 of his
own men This corresponds to the state
ment of Captain Morton of the Third
cavalry Morton became senior on the
front line by the wounding of Major
Wessells and went along the crest from
right to left to find out his strength.
He located 40 to 45 rough riders at 3 :30

to El Caney that the real hardship of

days had been distributed and.the men

this trail to recover the sorely needed
rations, the horde of Cuban camp fol
lowers had carried off everything.
About 10 at night the command
reached level, grassy fields south of El
Caney and east of Santiago. The men
were under orders not to build fires, not
to talk loud, and, worn out with the heat
and tedious march, they lay down in
the wet grass and slept. Under the or
ders they could not strike a light for
smoking and could not make coffee.
Tbe chronicler of all this is not disposed
to gloss over anything, but he says that
there was no fault finding, as the men
realized that absolute secrecy and si
lence were necessary to success.
The short march on the morning of
July 1 was teward El Caney battlefield.
Led by tbe regulars of the Eighth and
Twenty-second the line marched past
Capron's guns, which had already open
ed the ball. Finally, while the Second
was marching west along a narrow
trail orders came to move by the right
flank into tho brush. This shift of di
rection brought the men soon in front
sf the Spanish lines. Capron's firing
meanwhile grew, heavier, and the Mau
ser fire aimed at the regulars in front
steadily increased, bnllets going over
the heads of the Massachusetts men.
Says the regimental chronicler: "It was
not to be expected but that the men
would be a little nervous at what they
were up against for the first time, but
there were very few men that balked,
and those who did were quickly spotted
by their comrades."
Through the brush the regiment made
its way to the Santiago-El Caney read.
Thero the men discarded rolls and hav
ersack and all- other impediments ex
cept canteens and rifles. In column of
fours the command moved up the road
toward El Caney seven companies
strong, five having been halted at Ca
pron's battery. Down across the road
from El Caney came a raking Mauser
fire from Spanish trenches and loopholed
buildings in El Caney. The Twenty-Eec-ond
regulars in line of battle in the field
were hard pressed, and General Ludlow
directed Colonel Clark to send four com
panies out to re-enforce the regulars.
Two of the companies detached reached
the regulars, but the other two got lost
in the chapparal and made their way to
the crossroad, a sunken way, having a
good bank for a parapet, where they
fought all day.
These detachments of force left but
three companies with Colonel Clark.
With them he threw out a deployed
line and advanced to the edge of the
brush facing-the enemy. These compa
nies kept up a continuous firing and
advanced to an open field in front cf
the Spanish blockhouses. The Massa
chusetts men were armed with Spring
field rifles, which send out a cloud of
smoking powder. This circumstance
drew the fire of the Spaniards, and the
result was that the fire cf the Second
gradually slackened to almost nothing.
But they werenot withdrawn from the
line, nor did " they give ground one
Tbe companies in the sunken road, E
and L, were good targets for Mansers.
Lieutenant Field of L was mortally
wonnded, and Private Brooks of E killed
early in tho action. Companies B and
K joined the line of regulars, but wero
handicapped by the black powder and
thus reduced to a nullity in the fight
except for defense. As the fight waxed
warm, however, tbe best shots fired at
Spanish sharpshooters, at blockhouses
and trenches, as chance offered. The men
were good shots, for tbe Second had the
best target record in tho state.
In the seven companies on the firing
line there were 8 officers and men killed
and 30 wonnded. The strength was
about 04; hence the casualties about 8
per cent Says the chronicler before
quoted: "It was a veritable baptism of
fire for the boys of the Second, but they
stood to it like men, and, with three ex
ceptions, every man shot was on the
At G o'clock p. m. the -day of battle
the regiment joined the division'column
for an advance direct upon Santiago,
as originally ordered by Shafter. At 9
o'clock the line halted and lay until 3
a. in., the 2d, when orders came from
Shafter to take the back track to tho
Sibouey-Santiago road and join the
troops which had carried San Jnan hill.
This march was made for the most part
over unknown trails with ignorant
gnides, and it was 10 in the forenoon
when the weary Massachusetts men
toiled up the slopes of San Juan under
tiro from sharpshooters.
The Second took the right of the lino
beyond the cav: ry. Two of its- men
were struck by Mansers during the aft
ernoon, and in the night defense of the
crest against a Spanish assanlt two
more were hit, ono fatally. These ca&u-

regiment advanced to tho right to begin
the real investment of Santiago. From
that date to the end of thu siego tho
Massachusetts men wero constantly
digging new trendies or strengthening

Two days wero spent strengthening this

Mrs. L. J. Dennis, of 82S East College Street,
Jacksonville, 111. "I was so bad I would lie
from day to day and long for death to come and
relieve my suffering. I had internal inflamma

in the lower part of my bowela, and such dis
