    My name is Barbara Rangel, and I am interested in knowing more about the Spanish-American War since my grandfather Colonel Cornelio Rojas was the son of General Cornelio Rojas Escobar and grandson of General Cornelio Rojas Hurtado both his father and grandfather fought in this war, but I can not seem to find any material with their names or “The Mambises”

    Would appreciate if someone can contact me with the important history of my ancestors.

    Cuba would have been much worse if the Spanish America War had not occurred and Spain would have continued owning Cuba.
