Maceo, -Maximo Gomez, Serafin Sanchez,
Zayas, Agulerre, Quintiu Baiideras, Carrillo,
and others since killed in battle, roamed
the island from east to west at will,
raiding, pillaging, and applying the torch
lo villages, forcing the surrender of the
volunteers, and being emboldened to such
an extent as lo exercise municipal functions

One of he pilucipal papers. Biano de la

that the Insurgents were knocking with the
