Long Description:
A quote by Calvin Coolidge accompanies and explains the mural above it:

"Landing in Porto Rico in 1898 carrying the flag of a united country extending the jurisdiction of the United States over a new empire and bringing many millions of oppressed people within the domain ofliberty."

The mural depicts several American soldiers with rifles and pistols. One seems about to shoot while others are getting in position to do the same while others are marching and two others march with flags. One flag is the US flag while the other may be the flag of the US Army.

This mural is on the right side of the War Memorial but does not seem to be considered a part of it..at least by the Smithsonian Inventory. See (visit link)

The Memorial is dated 1907 but there is no info at the site about the date and artist for the mural.

The State House is open to the public from *8:45 am to 5 pm. at no charge.

Another quote from Coolidge accompanies the mural on the left side. See (visit link)
