Default Old Gunboats Marques del Duero & Gen Lezo

Hello,

I'm searching for photographs of the old Spanish gunboats Marques del Duero and General Lezo from the Spanish-American War era. Can anyone help ?

There is a dedicated website, I believe part of the U.S. Naval Historical Center's site that probably has the photos you are looking for. Both those vessels were part of the Spanish Fleet at Manila Bay in May, 1898, if I remember correctly, and if so were sunk there.

Thanks for the info and the picture. I do have that one of General Concha. From what I have seen in reference materials, The General Lezo was similar to, but not of the same class. For the Marques del Duero, I sometimes wonder if that isn't her in the photograph on the Span-Am war website, as her sister Fernando el Catolico, had a very very short life and was lost during the Carlist Wars.

 A splendid little war was how John Hay, ambassador to Britain, described the Spanish-American war of 1898. Though the war was small in scope it was large in consequences; it promoted the regeneration of the American Navy and the emergence of the United States as a major world power. Fought primarily at sea, the war created an American naval legend in its opening encounter between the pacific squadrons of Spain and the United States at Manila Bay on the 1st of May 1898. At sunrise Admiral Dewey, leading the American fleet in his flagship the USS Olympia, had caught the Spanish fleet, under Admiral Patricio Montojo, by surprise - still anchored off Sangley Point at Manila Bay in the Philippine Islands. Defeat for the Spanish was total and heralded the end of a once extensive Spanish empire in the Americas. Montojos flagship, Reina Cristina, is seen here under fire from the Olympia.

Midday, 21st October 1805, and Admiral Collingwoods flagship, the 100-gun HMS Royal Sovereign, breaks the allied line and delivers a shattering broadside on the Spanish flagship Santa Anna.

To her starboard, the French Indomitable can be seen firing into the British flagship while, astern of the Santa Anna, Belleisle and Fougueux are engaging ahead of Mars, Monarca and Pluton.
