Valiant Miniature Kit# 9749 - 71st NY Volunteers 1898 (Spanish-American War). The 71st was typical of the militia units that served in the "splendid little war". The militia were not as well equipped as the regulars, a fact that cost the 71st heavy casualties at San Juan Hill, where the heavy smoke of their old Springfields revealed their positions to the Spaniards.
