The Structure of Cuban History

Louis A. Jr. Pérez

University of North Carolina Press

In 1898 the war for independence ended. Cuba emerged from this war devastated. Cubans had been relentless in their demand for national sovereignty. It had been a total war. This chapter examines the state of Cuba immediately following the war. It was not clear how Cuba would get back on track and find a peace for themselves. The war had shattered life. Conditions were desperate. Vast numbers of Cubans had sacrificed family and fortune in the pursuit of a nation of their own. The experience shaped the people they became. Much of the destruction was purposeful, self-inflicted, and the result of the method Cubans had chosen to wage war for independence.
