Description

    Leader Spanish-American War Sample Cigar Label by O. L. Schwencke, New York. Full color lithographed 9" x 6" inner label with gold-embossed highlights. The central figure here is Major General Nelson A. Miles (1839-1925) who was the U.S. Army's ranking officer during the Spanish-American War. Miles, although held on a tight leash by President McKinley, was a well-established military hero by 1898. The general's glowing service record included receiving the Medal of Honor for heroism during the Civil War as well as victories over great Indian chiefs like Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse, and Geronimo. Amid American and Cuban flags, Miles is flanked by two smaller vignettes celebrating the war on land, as well as sea. This item should be of interest to militaria collectors as well as those primarily interested in cigar labels. A few very light stains, else excellent condition.
