1 print on yellow ground wood paper : relief cuts, with text in letterpress ; 19.9 x 29.7 cm. (sheet).
Broadside shows a bust portrait, perhaps of Cariño. The text conveys the "Ballad of Cariño" in which two men, Cariño and Moreno, duel with each other, and ends with Moreno being shot dead. On the verso there is an image of a crowd of men reaching upward. The text consists of text in verse titled "Free Cuba" and a song titled "The martyrs."
