It was also because of the brutal ways that Spain was using to deal with the Cuban rebels. The U.S thus stepped in and helped Cuba gain it independence from the Spanish. The war involved a series of war and bloodshed both on the side of the U.S and Spain. The U.S thus won the war leading to the Spanish leaving Cuba. The war also set a stage for other policies in the U.S and reflected the development that had been experienced in the 19th Century.
In fact, a factor that contributed to a large extent to Castro’s rise to power can arguably be Batista’s government. Batista’s government was the main cause of instability in Cuba from 1952 up to 1st of January 1959. Batista seized power and created a dictatorship. Moreover, adding to this dictatorship, his government was also corrupted. This factor led to Castro’s rise to power as the Cubans did not want to live under such government which used violence as a mean to control the population.
To understand this war one must know the background. Spain had ben occupying Cuba for many years. Cuba became resentful of their unfair treatment and began to rebel. American saw this rebellion as a mirror to their own struggle against British forces some 120 years earlier. In Hearst’s papers he showed the Cuban Rebels as noble patriots, though many of them had resorted to acts of terrorism.
This is evident in Editha through the characterization of George and Editha, both representing an opposing view on imperialism. Americans had sympathies for the Cubans, they struggled under Spanish rule. But American sympathy was not the sole reason for America getting involved in the Cuban revolution. American business had about $50 million invested in Cuba and these investments were at risk because of the revolution taking place in Cuba (Kennedy-Cohen 610). The Teller Amendment also proves that America went to war with Spain for the wrong reasons.
He was also responsible for invasion of the Moroccan cities in North Africa, as he was the responsible and Capitan of the army in the Canarias islands and North Africa. But he was as responsible as General Sanjurjo and General Mola, that were the ones that made the plan of the coup, but as they died in strange circumstances he took the power. So I think that if the two generals wouldn 't die, the war would happened the anyways and in the same way. Because the nationalist wanted to took the power so they did the coup, but as they were not successful the war started but. With this I want to say that Franco was more responsible to continue the war, ally with the Nazis in Germany and fascists in Italy and to kill people that to started the war.
Finally, Drake helped in the English victory against the juggernaut that was the Spanish Armada. In 1587, after reports came to Queen Elizabeth about a Spanish Invasion, she bestowed upon Drake the command of a fleet of thirty ships. Drake led these ships down to the port of Cadiz, Spain, and proceeded to destroy and damage a majority of the Spanish fleet anchored there. While this courageous action was a major victory for the British, it only served to delay the Spanish invasion for a year (Trueman C.N.). After rebuilding from Drake 's earlier raid on Cadiz, Spain sent its invasion force against England in 1588.
Many factors helped influence and inspire the writing of the song. The “Star-Spangled Banner” is a powerful anthem for the United States because of the inspiration of one battle, one man, and one flag. The Battle of Baltimore, taking place during the War of 1812, was the event that inspired the writing of the “Star-Spangled Banner.” Not long after the United States won its independence from English, the young country was once again at war with England in the War of 1812 (Georgiady and Romano 6).
Even if Mary Celeste wasn’t found in the Bermuda region and was in other part of the Atlantic, many conspirators associate the case with the Triangle itself. The case of the unnamed ship associated with the Ellen Austin crews: in 1881, the crew of The Ellen Austin, an American ship which used to sail between New York and London, found a mysterious deserted ship. The captain ordered to some of his crew to guide the ship back to New York alongside the Ellen Austin, however the two vessels were separated by a huge storm and the unnamed ship with part of the Ellen Austin crew were gone. The Ellen Austin found the unnamed ship one more time but once again no single soul was on board. The captain ordered some of the crew to take the vessel again, but once again the unnamed ship vanished and this time she was never found by the Ellen Austin or other ship after that.
The atomic bomb was a nuclear weapon of war, and the first of these bombs were dropped on two Japanese during the second world war. The dropping of the atomic bomb was justified because of the fact that Japan had attacked Pearl Harbor, they had participated in many atrocities and a land invasion would have caused more of the allies to die. It’s because of these big reasons that the United States had to drop the atomic bomb because without it the Japanese would’ve just continued to fight and kill more allies. The atomic bomb also showed the Japanese and the axis powers that they were a nation not to fight with.
The Spanish-American War was fought in 1898 between Spain and the United States. The Spanish-American War ended Spain’s colonial rule in the Americas. The war began when Cuba tried to achieve independence from Spain in February of 1895. The United States officially declared war on Spain in April, after the USS Maine battleship exploded in Havana, killing 266 American sailors. It was never proven that Spain was actually responsible for the battleship sinking, but the US newspapers battle cry became “Remember the Maine.”
In 1898, the USS Maine was stinking in the Havana Harbor. It was in the Havana Harbor protecting the US citizens who was in Havana helping the Cuban rebels . Who has done the sunken of the ship. 3 possible groups where the Spain, Cuba or it was an attacking. I personally believe it was an was a mine planted by Spain.
The first battle of the Spanish American war was when the Spanish thought that the Americans were going to invade Cuba. It took place in the Philippines, the Spanish colony. In two months and with 11,000 troops the Spanish surrendered to the United States. With hostilities and a blockade of Cuba, the United States showed its superiority
The Spanish-American War and World War1 were one of the most crucial moments in our history as Americans and the reasons we joined were for humanity and for our benefit. The U.S entered the Spanish American War and World War 1 for very similar reasons. They joined from innocent Americans getting killed or from being directly affected from the war, territory and resources, and unfair rules that hurt not just Americans but innocent people. These are the 3 main reasons why the U.S joined both of these wars.
Spanish-American war of 1896, Cuba was the last remaining colony of Spain in the new world. Cuban sugar cane workers were rebelling because of poverty and bad conditions. William Randolph Hearst, a sensationalist reporter who was investigating the war, sent an artist to Cuba to sketch the action. Unfortunately for him, nothing violent was happening, so Hearst exaggerated the truth. Pressured into war the president sends the Maine to harbor, but it suddenly exploded.
