— The Sun, September 4, 1898.

“I am honored to meet the brave men who stand before me to-day. I bring you the gratitude of the nation, to whose history you have added by your valor a new and glorious page. You have come home after two months of severe campaigning, which has embraced assault, siege and battle — so brilliant in achievement, so far-reaching in results as to earn the unstinted  praise of all you countrymen….To the Army and Navy, to the Marines, to the regulars, to the volunteers, and to that Providence which has watched over them all, the nation to-day is full of thanksgiving and praise….”

— President William McKinley, Great Plain, Montauk, Saturday, September 3, 1898, as quoted in The Sun.
