Talk:Cuban Revolution

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


This article (as of 5/11/2006 anyway) jumps from Castro's forces barely surviving in the mountains to post-revolution trials and purges. Surely something happened between these two events.

Gun shot Wounds[edit]

I changed "gun shoot wounds" to "gun shot wounds". I hit submit by accident before I could finish my edit summary.

Causes of Revolution should be added[edit]

As of Nov. 25, 2009 there is no mention of the causes of the revolution which would help understand why it happened in the first place. The work by Sam Dolgoff provides causes and misconceptions of the revolution including first hand eyewitness reports of Castro's push for a totalitarian takeover of Cuba.


Cuba's date of independence from Spain[edit]

In the article's first section, "Background and causes", the first sentence states that Cuba gained its independence from Spain in 1902. If I'm not mistaken, Cuba gained its "independence" from Spain in 1898 with the Treaty of Paris. The island then became a protectorate of the United States until 1902, when it declared itself a self-governing republic. I'm going to edit the first sentence to reflect this reading of history, for now. If anyone would like to make the argument against this edit, I'll change it back, or we could amend it in a different way. CarlsonC (talk) 00:55, 1 January 2017 (UTC)
