Join us for an exhibition, Red Cross Nursing and the War of 1898: The Tampa Connection.  Curated by University of Tampa students based on the research of Charles McGraw Groh, UT Associate Professor of History.  Many people know that Tampa and the Tampa Bay Hotel played an important role in the Spanish-Cuban-American War. Most remain unaware that the conflict witnessed the first time that the American Red Cross provided nursing services in wartime. This panel exhibit traces the path that led dozens of young women from New York to Tampa and Cuba in 1898.
