Description

Men on Horseback Leading Funeral Caissons. A black and white photo of a funeral procession in Washington D.C for the victims of the explosion of the USS Maine. There are three men on horses and one riderless horse at the front leading a funeral caisson. Several caissons can be seen behind them, along with a number of men in military uniforms and a number of horses hitched to the caissons. There are people at some of the windows of the buildings in the background. The USS Maine exploded off the coast of Cuba in 1898, but it wasn't until 1911-1912 that the bodies were removed from the sea and brought home to the United States.
