The Hulk of the ANTONIO LOPEZ

Please Visit our Home Page to learn more about the Spanish American War

This image is of the burned out hulk of the ANTONIO LOPEZ, which had attempted to run the blockade surrounding Puerto Rico, ran aground and was subsequently set ablaze by incendiary shells from the U.S. Cruiser NEW ORLEANS. The Spanish had time, however, to completely unload her before she was set afire.

Here, she is completely burned out, with her bulkheads beginning to collapse inwards from a lack of support.
