This historic pictorial book addresses the attempts of the United States to seize Cuba, its support for Spain economically and militarily to prevent the island's independence; about the many times that they tried to buy it during the 19th century, the intervention and military occupation of the island between 1898 and 1902 as well as the excesses, abuses, and humiliations to which the town was subjected.

It also constitutes a tribute to the Cuban artists who knew how to capture, through caricature, the people's rejection of the Yankee intervention, the denunciation of the corruption of our wealth, the outrage at the abuses and outrages, and that they left for history, among others, his version of the meaning of the shameful Platt Amendment, in a caricature of profound significance, entitled "El Calvario Cubano", which reproduces the biblical scene of the crucifixion. The crucified were the Cuban people
