Translated from the Spanish
The publication by this office of the partial translation of "Battles and Capitulation of Santiago de Cuba," by Lieutenant Müller y Tejeiro, was received with so much interest both in and out of the service that the small edition of 1,000 copies was soon exhausted. The chapters there omitted were:
I. Some Historical Antecedents.
II. The United States and the Maine.
III. The First Shots.
IV. The Scene of Events.
V. Forces of the Jurisdiction (Santiago).
VI. Works of Defense.
VII. Artillery Set Up.
VIII. The Cruiser Reina Mercedes.
XIV. The Volunteers.
XXX. Escario's Column (being a description of General Escario's march across the country from Manzanillo to Santiago).
XXXIII. Suspension of Hostilities.
XXXVII. Traders, not the Spanish People (responsible for the Cuban trouble).
XXXVIII. Gerona and Santiago de Cuba (comparison of the two battles).
