About this artwork

Text printed on reverse of stereocard:

Admiral Evans is commander-in-chief of the American fleet; was born in Virginia, fought on the Union side during the Civil War, commanded the Iowa at Santiago, is now Rear-Admiral of the greatest fleet ever assembled by the United States, and will make the longest cruise of any fleet in the history of the world. Admiral Evans is known the world over as "Fighting Bob," the pride of the American Navy, and the idol of the American sailor. He has a long and interesting history, full of stirring events from the day he graduated from Annapolis up to the present time. He was in the Indian battles of the far West, and had the luck to be present and took an active part in all of the many naval affairs since the Civil War. In August, 1908, he will be made either Vice-Admiral or placed on the retired list.
