    Nine Canadians served in Cuba with Teddy Roosevelt's famous 'Rough Riders' (also known as the 1st Volunteer Cavalry) and little is known about them.

    As a side note, Kathleen 'Kit' Coleman was one of Canada's most celebrated early war correspondents and she reported on the Spanish American War.
