Rough Riders - Teddy Roosevelt at San Juan Heights scene

After today's class, you should be familiar with the causes, events, and results of the Spanish-American War. Now, the question remains, why was the Spanish-American War?

Please watch the attached video clip from the film Rough Rider and keep this question in mind. It is a scene from the end of the film, describing the aftermath of the Battle of San Juan Heights. In a 5-7 sentence paragraph, write a reflection about the video clip. There are no right or wrong answers here, just write what you think about the clip, how it made you feel, if it is accurate or not, etc. Bring your response to class tomorrow and be prepared to discuss.
