It is hoped that the reader will find in this volume not only a comprehensive current history of our war with Spain for Cuba's freedom, but also much of the other matter that will be of interest and value in considering the future of the liberated island. Its history, its people, its resources and other salient subjects are included, with certain matter on Spain and her own affairs, with Puerto Rico and the Philippine islands, which chapters serve to make the volume a work for general reference and reading on the whole subject of the war.

A lot of fake stuff written by a redneck containing lies about Spain and trying to make fun of that country. In case he didin't know, the USA are a country itself and got independence thanks to spanish intervention. American people should be grateful for the country that made a huge sacrifice for our independence. Its incredible to see how this stuff manages to be published. Simply amazed by this guy's ignorance. If you are proud of being american, you should be thankful to Spain, since they helped and since more than half of the actual US were given as a gift of the Spanish Empire to our country.
