Company D of the 2nd Missouri Volunteer Infantry leaving for the Spanish-American War. Sedalia, Missouri, 1898.

On April 25, 1898 the United States declared war on Spain following the sinking of the Battleship Maine in Havana harbor on February 15, 1898. The war ended with the signing of the Treaty of Paris on December 10, 1898. As a result Spain lost its control over the remains of its overseas empire -- Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Philippines Islands, Guam, and other islands. The war had cost the United States $250 million and 3,000 lives, of whom, 90% perished from infectious diseases.

From the Elevated: 1900

From the Elevated: 1900

"From the Elivated [sic]", Chicago, 1900. From "Sam Hyde's Photography Travelogue Adventures," 1898-1904.

In early Chicago city planning, subways were too expensive to consider and elevated tracks appeared to be the right choice. On June 6, 1892, the first elevated line in Chicago opened, running from Congress Parkway and State Street to 39th Street, along the alley, behind and around buildings, its route was completely through city-owned alleys. Earning it the nickname "Alley 'L'." This was done to circumvent the difficulty of obtaining consent signatures from the property owners along the streets, something required by the Cities and Villages Act of 1872.
