ZAFIRO (ship)

Commodore George Dewey's* anticipated attack on the Spanish squadron at Manila* required some significant logistical planning. Far from any U.S. base, Dewey needed a small fleet of transports and colliers to resupply his squadron. On 9 April 1898 Dewey purchased Zafiro at Hong Kong. A 1,062-ton collier built in Scotland in 1884, Zafiro had only one navy officer aboard, the commanding officer, and served a variety of resupply and coaling missions during the Spanish American War and the subsequent Philippine Insurrection.*Zafiro traveled the length and breadth of the Philippines. She was decommissioned on 15 January 1906.

ZOGBAUM, RUFUS FAIRCHILD (1849-1925)

Action photography was yet in its infancy in 1898, and the news-hungry public still looked to illustrators to provide images and impressions of significant events. Besides Frederic Remington,* Rufus Fairchild Zogbaum perhaps became more closely associated with the Spanish American War than any other popular illustrator. However, whereas Remington remains a household name among artists and illustrators, Zogbaum remains obscure. Despite the parallels between Zogbaum's and Remington's careers, Zogbaum's predated Remington's, and Zogbaum became known as essentially a military artist, devoting almost his entire twentieth-century output to naval and military subjects. Between the years 1885 and 1890 Zogbaum published over fifty illustrations for Harper's Weekly, the leading periodical of the day. Zogbaum specialized in drawings of cowboys, westerners, Indians, and the military on the frontier. His work appeared in fiction, as well.
