Celebrating July 4th, 1898, "the triumph of the American battle-ship" by Udo Keppler, 1872-1956, artist, 1898. Uncle Sam sitting with John Bull, who is a sailor representing England, and six figures representing "Spain", "Italy" (Umberto I), "Austria" (Franz Joseph I), "France", Germany (William II), and "Russia" (Nicholas II), watching a fireworks display that shows the outline of a huge American battleship that illuminates the ruins of the "Spanish Fleet", and in the clouds of smoke shows portraits of "Schley, Sampson, Hobson and Dewey".
