1. A US cavalry trooper with a M1896 carbine, Span-Am War.
2. A Buffalo Soldier in full dress uniform with marksmanship medals and a M1898 Krag rifle.

4. Nicaraguan Conservative militia with Krags & Colt M1918 HMG.
5. Members of the Philippine Constaulary with with Krag P.C. carbines.

Here's my great grandfather around the time of the secession from Sweden, 1905. He was in a regiment in the North of Norway at that time.

Note that the 1894 short bayonet is nicely visible.

I'll post this in the Norwegian sticky post too.

Krags at the Cemetary Wall, Battle of Manila 1899

I believe this picture is at the Chinese Cemetary north of Manila, which was captured February 5th by the 3d US Artillery (Regulars) (assigned as infantry) of MG MacArthur's 2d Division, 1st Brigade. This was after general fighting broke out on February 4th, 1899.
