This is the continuation of a study made by Dorsey Walker, entitled The Attitude of the Atlanta Constitution on the Cuban Crisis 1898-1900. This study, like his, places special emphasis upon sectional, racial, economic, and political questions. An analysis of the Constitution is all the more valuable because through S. L. Beckwith, the paper's correspondent in Cuba, was given a day by day report of events on the island. This study may perhaps be not without importance because of the fact that Joseph E. Wisan in his study limited his analysis to the New York Press and goes only to 1898.
