Revisiting Fidel and the Cuban Revolution: Part 2 of a BNP Original Series (1898-1958) #HeliumRadio
What’s up to all my renegade frondeurs* and owl-eyed wunderkind!
Welcome back everyone to the second installment of a BNP Original Series about the life of Fidel Castro and the macro-history of the Cuban Revolution.
Part 2 covers Cuban history from the end of the Spanish-American War in 1898 (and subsequent ceding of Cuba from Spain to the U.S.) to New Year’s Eve of 1958, when U.S. puppet and brutal dictator Fulgencio Batista flees Cuba in the face of imminent defeat to Castro’s guerrilla army (Batista makes sure to steal away $100 million dollars of Cuban treasure when he flies out of Havana in the middle of the night).
Three major players in the Cuban Revolution are brought into the world during this timeframe. On August 13, 1926, Lina Ruz González gives birth to one Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz, and on June 3, 1931, she gives birth to Raúl Modesto Castro Ruz. On June 14, 1928, Celia de la Serna y Llosa gives birth to Che Guevara.
