Printer Notes: The 26 Baku Commissars were Bolshevik and Left Socialist Revolutionary members of the Baku Soviet. During the time the Soviet met in Baku, it was the capital city of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic. After being overthrown, the commissars were captured by the anti-Soviet Centro-Caspian administration. Although liberated (reportedly by Red Army forces) the 26 commissars were ultimately executed by firing squad in September 1918 by the anti-Soviet administration.
