The Spanish-American War
Dear Editor of New York Times,
I have read your stories in the Spanish American War. It is very terrifying to hear about the war in Spain, and the horror of the reconcentration camps that the the Cubans are being forced into. My family has been very upset and terrified by the thought that we may be next. My younger siblings are scared to go to school due to the treats. It frightens me to think that this could be true. I do hope that you change your writing tone, and have a better clear explanation for Americans to understand what is going on in their home towns.

Hundreds fell under Spanish gunfire before reaching the base of the heights, where the force split up into two flanks to take San Juan Hill and Kettle Hill. The men were tired and starving, the dry summer weather left them dehydrated and restless. As the war continued with the fear of the soldiers.
