The Cover

A reproduction of the cover of Harper's Weekly, New York, May 20, 1899, depicting Frederick Funston, "fighting colonel" of the 20th Kansas volunteer infantry in the Philippines, as the hero of the day.

The American Monthly Review of Reviews, New York, June 1899, reported a tongue-in-cheek proposal in Kansas "to make Funston governor, fill the other State offices and the Legislature with members of the Twentieth, and parcel out to the remaining heroes of the regiment the county and city offices, until every man is a mayor, a sheriff, a chief of police," etc.
