Where did the Spanish American war take place?
1 Answer | add yours
All significant fighting in the Spanish-American War took place in two locations. These were Cuba, where the main fighting occurred, and the Philippines. Most of the land fighting of the war took place in Cuba. Cuba was the cause of the war in the first place as the US was trying to help Cuba become independent of Spain. The US attacked the Philippines simply as another way to weaken Spain. There was one relatively major naval engagement and some small land battles there. The US also took Guam and Puerto Rico in this war, but both of these were essentially bloodless conquests.
