Excerpt from Greater Salem in the Spanish-American War

For Two years previous to the breaking out of the Spanish-American war, certain residents of the Isle of Cuba, about 30,000 in number, had been engaged in a revolution against the mother country of Spain, in an endeavor to secure their independence.

War had been raging intermittently on the island for years, and although thousands of Spanish soldiers had been sent to Cuba, the insurgents, as those who were up in arms against the government were called, had almost invariably won the battles, or had run away in the face of superior numbers and saved themselves a defeat.

This state of things had so enraged the Spanish that the war was carried on with terrible cruelty by them. Cuban soldiers, when caught, were shot under the pretence of being spies, while old women, men and children, who were lured to the cities by the Spaniards by promises of being kept in safety, were starved and ill treated so that they died by the hundreds.

During this time the United States had observed strict neutrality, although from time to time efforts had been made by members of Congress to have the insurgents recognized as belligerents, or the Cuban government recognized, but all were unsuccessful.

During this period the United States had expended considerable money in maintaining a fleet of cruisers as patrols on the southern coast to prevent American ships from landing arms or supplies on the island to help the insurgents - filibustering, it was called.
