“War and Dissent: U.S. in the Philippines” Continues in the Presidio

The War and Dissent: U.S. in the Philippines 1898-1915 exhibit will continue in the Presidio until February 22nd, 2009. It’s a nice collection of detailed wall displays that would be especially appropriate for school tours.

Check out famous but obscure Guantanamo Bay U.S. Naval Base in this graphic. The U.S. government sends a rent check (about what you’d pay for a large apartment in Pacific Heights) over every month that the Cuban government (almost always) refuses to cash. Click to expand:

See you there!
