Details:On March 18, 2022, a provocative new exhibit will open at the Henry Plant Museum. Stop the Presses! Fake News and the War of 1898 explores yellow journalism and the work of famous war correspondents such as Richard Harding Davis and Frederic Remington. This exhibit is curated by Dr. Charles McGraw Groh of The University of Tampa and will run through December 23, 2022. “You furnish the pictures. I’ll furnish the war!” This famous phrase, attributed to William Randolph Hearst, owner of the New York Journal, remains firmly ensconced in our collective memory of the Spanish-American War. Did Hearst really make this boast to the artist Frederic Remington? More importantly, did the flamboyant journalistic exploits and provocative images associated with “yellow journalism” contribute to the U.S. declaration of war against Spain in 1898? To answer these questions, this exhibit retraces the steps of Richard Harding Davis, Stephen Crane, Remington, and other war correspondents from New York to Tampa and Cuba. It offers the rare opportunity to view first-hand original Remington artwork, correspondence, and artifacts from events such as the explosion of the USS Maine and the Battle of San Juan Hill.
