Summary
From The Phonoscope, January 1899, p. 15: Down goes the Spanish flag, and up floats the Stars and Stripes. Down falls the symbol of tyranny and oppression that has ruled in the new world for four hundred years, and up goes the Banner of Freedom. In the distance are the turrets and battlements of Morro, the last foothold of Spain in America. (C. Musser, Edison motion pictures 1890-1900, p. 482)
Capture
Filmed ca. Jan. 2, 1899, on Vitagraph's rooftop studio in New York City, in front of a painted backdrop of Morro Castle.
