Ironic, as today is the 109th Anniversary of the sinking of the USS Maine.

I have a fairly romantic view of the Spanish anarchists, and while I've occasionally read miscellaneous accusations laid out against them, this comic came as a bit of a surprise. I'd like to know more.

Oops. Spanish Civil War, not Spanish-American War. Sorry.

Very nice capsule of both the freedoms and the captivity involved with that whole time period. Thanks.
