This book presents a series of what were confidential and classified documents and information gathered by the American Consulate in Havana during the days of the 1895 Cuban War of Independence. No one was better informed about this conflict than Fitzhugh Lee, an old Confederate cavalry General who had seen his first actions at the Battle of Bull Run in 1861. For a good many years he was the eyes, the intellect and ears of the United States as Our Consul in Havana. Hundred of historical photos.
