Leaving Santiago de Cuba on the Transport Gate City…


“We were the first transport away…and it was a grand sight to see those thousands of poor fellows giving us a send-off….And just as we pulled out, our band, which came along with us, started, ‘Home, Sweet, Home’….and the tears came to my eyes. That old song stirred us up, I can tell you, and it sent
our thoughts to home…”

“How are you, Col. Roosevelt?” shouted an officer to Roosevelt, who was standing on the ship’s bridge as the transport Miami docked at the Iron Pier at Fort Pond Bay.

“I am feeling disgracefully well,” Roosevelt shouted in reply. “I feel positively ashamed of my appearance when I see how badly off some of my brave fellows are.”

Then, in tones of intense conviction, “Oh, but we have had a bully fight!”

The Rough Riders

The Rough Riders are, of all regiments, the public’s favorite. They form the one regiment that belongs to no State. They represent the whole country, and Texas feels as much local pride in them as does New York. They represent no one walk in life and no one grade in society

…A more ideal commander for such a regiment could not be found than the gallant, dashing and impetuous Roosevelt.

Page 75 — Editorial, Commercial Advertiser. August 16, 1898.

When formation of the 1st United States Volunteer Cavalry was announced in April, 1898, there were 20,000 applicants from across the country. One thousand sixty were selected — all excellent horsemen & marksmen. Trained in San Antonio, then stationed in Tampa — 500 went to Cuba in June and 500 with held in reserve in Tampa.



Major General Joseph ‘Fighting Joe’ Wheeler

On August 15, 1898, Gen. Wheeler debarked the transport Miami and was in command of Camp Wikoff from August 19th thru September 4th. A Confederate General in the Civil War, Wheeler afterwards rose to the rank of General in the US Army, and came to personify the unification of the country following the Civil War. Wheeler graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1859.

Nurse Annie Laurie Early Wheeler

Nurse Wheeler was the only non-immune Red Cross nurse to go to Santiago. She then applied to Col. Forwood and was assigned to Ward 1 at Camp Wikoff, where she tended to the care of forty patients. 

Given the overwhelming number of fever-stricken soldiers arriving at Camp Wikoff, or expected to arrive soon, the United States Government, for the first time, contracted with nurses of the American Red Cross to serve in the General and Detention Hospitals at the camp, a service traditionally restricted to male nurses.

Lieut. Tiffany, suffering from malnutrition, returned by transport to Fort Pond Bay from Santiago de Cuba, but remained on board the transport waiting for provisions for six hours before continuing to Boston, where he died of ‘starvation’ on August 25, 1898.

A member of the Knickerbocker Club, he was a grandnephew of Commodore Perry and a nephew of August Belmont.

John Hawthorne, New York Seventy-First

The grandson of Nathaniel Hawthorne made a splendid record for heroism at Santiago with the brave Seventy-first, but when his mother found him at Camp Wikoff, he was so emaciated and weak that he fainted at the joy of seeing her.

Journalist Julian Hawthorne, son of Nathaniel Hawthorne, was the father of John Hawthorne.

Auxiliary Cruiser Prairie

The Prairie, with 400 American soldiers on board — 100 of whom were sick — grounded on a sand bar between Amagansett and Napeague Beach in a heavy fog between 8 and 9 the night of August 26th. It was thought that the ship’s captain had mistaken the Ponquogue Lighthouse, Hampton Bays, for the Montauk Point Lighthouse, then, in the thick fog, made the turn to round the Point too soon and “dug her nose so deeply into the sand that the efforts of her engines to pull her off again were futile.”

“For miles around people came to help in the work of taking these unfortunates ashore…”

Page 133 — The Sun, August 27, 1898. 


On August 28th, Col. John Jacob Astor IV of Newport sailed to Montauk Point on his yacht Nourmahal, in company with Mrs. Victor Sorchan, Mrs. Ogden Mills, and Fernando Yznaga, with the choicest delicacies and needed food. Cornelius Vanderbilt also contributed to this mission.

To the Editors of the New York Times:

….Now, who is Alger, who dares to say to the American people that the conduct of the departments
responsible for the past and present disgraceful condition of affairs in the army is magnificent? …  
Each unavenged victim of the crime of the War Department will cost the Republican Party thousands of votes….The political history of this country shows that the people do not forget crimes… 

For campaign purposes, ‘Remember Camp Wikoff’

may be as effective as ‘Remember the Maine’.

“The Real, Genuine Stuff”

“All the volunteers fought hard,” said a Cavalry Sergeant, “but those Rough Riders–

look at that now, look at those two just riding up there. See how their arms are fixed

–just right; and their seat comfortable, deep down in the saddle,

and their hats–look at the hats.

Oh, say, they’re the stuff, they are; the real, genuine stuff.”

The Slouch Hat

The United States Army never did a more fashionable and practical thing than when it adopted the slouch hat for the rank and file — the soft, round, limited sombrero, with the broad brim  — just wide enough to take on beautiful curves bending down under the sun or up before the wind, giving always perfect lines, artistic form.

The Rough Riders’ Mascot

Thirteen year old Dabney Royster hid in an army wagon as several troops of the Rough Riders passed through Memphis, Tennessee.  With his father’s permission, Dabney then went with the Rough Riders to Cuba, but the soldiers would not let him within half a mile of the fighting. He became a mascot protege of the Rough Riders, returning with them to Montauk on board the transport Miami, and later said that he wanted to be “a soldier all the time.”

More than half the soldiers arriving by transport were suffering from tropical fevers — malaria, typhoid, dysentery, and, in a few cases, yellow fever. More than sixty died on board returning transports and were buaried at sea.

“You had the brunt of the battle on land. You bore yourselves with supreme courage, and your personal bravery, never before excelled anywhere, has won the admiration of your fellow citizens and the genuine respect of all mankind, while your endurance under peculiar trial and suffering has given added meaning to American heroism.”

Col. Roosevelt signed the Visitor’s Log when he visited the Montauk Point Lighthouse on September 6, 1898. Hundreds of soldiers visited the Lighthouse during their stay at Camp Wikoff.


The writer will long preserve one brief impression of Col. Roosevelt as he stood at the mess tent, with his head up, his chest expanded, and his powerful arms outstretched, breathing deep of the fresh sea air.

“Oh,” he said, with a long sigh of prophetic regret, “I’ll miss this place when it’s all over!”

The most pitiable sight that is to be seen hereabouts is the ‘ghost’ type…the man who isn’t ill enough to be admitted to the hospital, but is too ill to do duty. Therefore, he has nothing to do but wander, and he lacks the strength for this, but he always essays it, with the result that he drops by the wayside… “Such cases,” says one of the surgeons here, “are just about beyond treatment…The cause is the hardships of the campaign, repeated attacks of fever, and lack of nourishing food…”

Gen. Wheeler’s second son, Thomas H. Wheeler, was swept out to sea this afternoon and drowned, together with Lieut. Newton D. Kirkpatrick of the First Cavalry, while bathing in the ocean. It is believed that the Lieutenant, who was weak from the effects of fever in Cuba, was overpowered by the sea and that young Wheeler went to his aid…and was bearing him to shore when he was overcome himself. 

Cadet Wheeler resembled his father in that he was so constituted that any one in grief or trouble immediately enlisted not only his sympathy but his aid as well.

Approximately 500 died at Camp Wikoff, including five Unknown Soldiers.

Caskets were disinterred and sent to the soldiers’ hometowns,

except for fifty that were re-interred at Cypress Hills National Cemetery, Brooklyn.

They died the heroes’ death as truly as those who fell in the trenches at Santiago, and some day their admiring and grateful countrymen will build on that noble headland a memorial shaft fit for those who in Freedom’s battle have won an undisputed title as “bravest of the brave.”

Given to Col. Roosevelt by the Rough Riders 


In bidding farewell to the Rough Riders, Col. Roosevelt said,

“No gift could have been so appropriate as this bronze by Frederic Remington. The men of the West and Southwest, horsemen, riflemen and herders of cattle, have been the backbone of this regiment…Besides the cowpuncher, this regiment contained men from every section of the country, every State of the Union….It gives me extreme pleasure to look around among you and see men of every occupation, men of means and men who work with their hands for a livelihood, and at the same time to know that I have you as friends. You are men of widely different pursuits, yet you stand here side-by-side, you fought shoulder to shoulder…You cannot imagine how proud I am of your friendship and regard….”

Of the Rough Riders, Roosevelt said, “They were American soldiers, no more and no less. Living, each one strove incessantly to do even more than his duty, scorning to do less, and ashamed to falter or ask for aid; yet always glad to help a brother who, however willing, was weaker: Dying, each faced with equal courage the fate which, in an instant of time, blots out all the differences that we rear with such infinite labor on this earth. Living and dying, they gave us a lesson in American citizenship, and this lesson which they taught in the war let us profit by as we live in peace.”

There is a weird gloominess about the place from which one cannot escape as he walks around and sees the buildings, which a month since were fairly alive with human beings, now boarded up and left as sad reminders of the scenes of pleasure, joy, delight, sadness, sorrow and misery, which were alternately presented there during the existence of Camp Wikoff….
