Through this war, we took control over territories and became competition against the other imperialistic nations. This was the product of Fredrick Jackson Turners
Even though Castro was a communist dictator, Cuba developed significantly under his control. As the world’s longest-serving domestic leader—nearly half a century, Castro’s name is permanently linked into Cuban
When one looks at all the revolutions the earth there are many differences. Evry revolution is different but every revolution have one thing in common, one group of people is being oppressed by another. For this essay we are supposed to compare two different revolutions to the American Revolution. The two others I chose are the Cuban revolution and the Haitian revolution. To begin, I will look at a little back ground of each revolution and then the main cause. Once I get done with that, I will then compare the causes to each other.
The first year of his presidency did not go well. One main reason was because of The Bay of Pigs invasion that had caused Cuba to become a communist state. This event ended up being a disaster and came very close to causing a nuclear war. Many lives were lost and people were injured. The Cubans were going to overthrow the government and rebel against the Cuban people.
The American Revolution was a successful revolt of the colonies and their mother country in a fight for their independence. It was successful, because the new independent country known as the United States of America was formed, and can still be seen today. However, the revolution goes very in depth on how it happened.
Cuba restricted access of the prisons to the international human rights monitors and the International Committee of the Red Cross. The justice system is heavily overworked and this caused it to try and finish up cases as quickly as possible. This causes many innocent people to be behind bars and makes it easier for people to be framed for crimes for crimes they didn't commit. This is important to Cuba because it tarnishes its image in the international perspective. Also, Cuba wants to become more humanitarian and ending prison torture is a good place to
The Mexican revolution is similar in many ways to the Cuban Revolution. The cuban revolution, however, was a much larger more world wide known revolution. Both revolutions were fought in mexico, but in the Revolution many more people died or were injured (Kenny). Also, a lot more of mexico was destroyed because of the fighting. A similarity between the Mexican and Cuban revolution was that they were both caused because of government issues.
The years 1750-1900 are better known as the Revolution Era. During this time period, there were several revolutions that occurred throughout the developing world. Two of the main revolutions were the French Revolution and the Latin American Revolution. Both revolutions followed the anatomy of a revolution and had comparable causes, however the French Revolution politically better outcomes, whereas the Latin American Revolution resulted in poverty and lost territory.
The American, French, and Haitian Revolutions all had a transcending effect on society and the overall government. All of them were based on Enlightenment principles that inspired change for them. In addition, they all had Constitutions and similar political powers. As a result, they all establish a Constitutional Republic. However, the Haitian Revolution was the most revolutionary out of all three of them. The Haitian Revolution started in 1791 and lasted until early 1800s. While the American Revolution had to deal with external opponents, and the French Revolution had to deal with external opponents, the Haitian Revolution had to deal with both. This led to them having more conflicts to fight. In addition, although they all had constitutions, the Haitian Revolution worked to abolish slavery. This is different since both the American and French Constitutions had slavery involvement within them. Another reason on why it’s more revolutionary is because it has a major impact to the slave society. This brought fear to slave owners, and increased rebellions. Overall, the Haitian Revolution is more revolutionary because it resulted in a successful slave
These political factors included the long-lasting rivalry between Fulgencio Batista’s government and Fidel Castro’s political organization, “26th of July Movement” (“The Movement”). Batista’s policies moved the country to the edge of revolution. Followed by an economical cause but to a lesser extent. Cuba’s economic status and its social situation made most civilians to support the idea of revolution. These factors gathered together and formed the strength and caused the Cuban revolution.
The cuban revolution allowed for gender equality and the role of women in cuban society to shift tremendously. The entire system of government changed, Cuban Women were given opportunities to leave their household and get an education, obtain government jobs that were only given to men, and they were granted opportunities that improved the status and the rights of women. Even though, the social and economic circumstances profoundly changed, social relations did not. Women in Cuba still had to fight exploitation, poverty, and violence. Many women were not given opportunities simply because of the color of their skin, notably lower class women who had to grapple with the intersecting, stratifying layers of classism, sexism, and racism in society.
After defeating Spain in 1898 war by the United States and Cuba, Spain left Cuba and U.S. forces occupied Cuba until 1902. In 1902 the United States decided to give Cuba the independence under certain condition that the United States had the right to interfere in Cuba. In the late 1800s the United States had control over the Cuban sugar industry and was purchasing 87 percent of Cuba’s exports. Also many American celebrities and tourists were visiting Havana’s resorts and casinos in the 1950s. Through Fulgencio Batista era, Cuba and the United States cooperated and the relations were stable among the countries.
