The Spanish-American War of 1898, despite the hyphen and implied dialectic, was never simply a matter involving two nations and a particular year. It was a global conflict from the very beginning, disputed by a European and a North American power but fought on islands on opposite sides of the world, in the Caribbean and Southeast Asia. Furthermore, substantive local revolutionary forces in both regions had been battling for independence before the foreign master changed from Spain to the United States. And the Spanish-American War did not take place only in 1898, at least not symbolically.
