During the war The fight in Cuba was very difficult; the U.S. Army was not prepared. The uniform were made of wool and were too hot for the humid. Meat were rotten, and other food were scarce. Even ammo and weapons were limited. Results On December 10, 1898, Spain and the United States signed the Treaty of Paris, officially ending the Spanish-American War. The Treaty relinquished Spanish claim to Cuba. More than $250 million was spent to defeat Spain, and about 2,000 soldiers died. Pg. 1 Pg. 2 Pg. 3 Pg. 4 Pg. 5
