George Percival Scriven:
An American in Bohol, The Philippines, 1899-1901
An On-line Archival Collection

"House at trenches near beach occupied at opening of action as headquarters. Second Brigade, Second Division, Eighth Army Corps. (General F.V. Greene) Telegraph station of Signal Corps."

This house is probably similar to the ones that Scriven describes, but is most likely not on Bohol.  It clearly shows the effects of the American War.
