US Army arriving for the invasion of Cuba

This was the scene when the United States invaded Cuba in 1898. Will it ever happen again?

  1. Because of the railroad tracks, ships at dockside and and fresh uniforms, this is likely a photo of the U.S. troops embarking from Tampa, Florida for Cuba in June 1898, at the “invitation” of Cuban Insurrectionist generals. This was the first ever amphibious
    invasion by U.S. troops, and it turned out to be very different than the Cubans ever imagined. It would set the tone for American foreign policy for more than a century.

  2. “I could hardly put SANTIAGO RAG down. This must-read novel will lead to an understanding of America’s emergence as a world power in a way that a hundred histories have failed to do. Gowan hides neither the blemishes not the bravery of his characters. SANTIAGO RAG is quite an achievement.” -Larry Daley, great grandson of Cuban General Calixto Garcia
