This chapter draws upon letters sent between Sánchez and other members of the 26 July Movement (M-26-7) to reveal the ways in which an official narrative of Sánchez’s hero status began taking shape in the Sierra Maestra. Aside from her role in smuggling arms into the Sierra Maestra, maintaining rebel communications, bringing international media attention to the movement, she participated in direct combat, earning her the title “first guerrilla of the Sierra Maestra.”
