Overview History The island of Cuba has a very rich cultural background and past to tell about. From the original Ciboney who first inhabited the island in the Caribbean Sea to its colonization by the Spanish and subsequent independence, the Cubans have had a tumultuous past, and Cuba has played significant roles in many international scenarios, such as the Cuban missile crisis. Cuba’s history naturally influences the island’s current state of affairs, which involves a somewhat precarious economy and delicate political situations.

Overview History
Pre-Hispanic Cuba
The first human inhabitants to allegedly have settled on the island of Cuba were a people known as the Ciboney, indigenous Americans from Central and South America who were mainly fishermen and hunter-gatherers. They had no agricultural techniques whatsoever and their tools and other implements were rather primitive. Soon other peoples migrated to Cuba, primarily from the Guianas in South America and the Orinoco basin in Venezuela. They were Arawak Indians who were considerably more evolved - they introduced many useful techniques to the area such as boat-building and cultivation of crops and they were skilled in making pottery and artifacts using wood. These agricultural people called themselves the Taino, although they are known as Arawak Indians and numbered over 90 000 by the time that Christopher Columbus arrived in 1492.

History of Cuba
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search Map of the West Indies Mexico and " New Spain " with Cuba in the center drawn by Herman Moll in 1736. The history of Cuba , the largest of Caribbean islands, includes being inhabited by indigenous peoples when Christopher Columbus sighted the island during his first voyage of discovery on 27 October 1492, and claimed it for Spain. Cuba subsequently became a Spanish colony to be ruled by the Spanish governor in Havana , though in 1762 this city was briefly held by Britain before being returned in exchange for Florida . A series of rebellions during the 19th century failed to end Spanish rule. However, increased tensions between Spain and the United States, resulting in the Spanish-American War , finally led to Spanish withdrawal , and in 1902, Cuba gained formal independence. In his book A History of Cuba and its relations with The United States , historian Philip S. Foner writes that Cuba's history:
"has a significance out of proportion to its size. The story of Cuba's struggle for liberatio from four-hundred years of Spanish domination is one of the great epics in history. The struggle for over half a century to change its status from a theoretically independent state, dominated by American imperialism, into a truly independent country is equally inspiring."
Further evidence suggests that the Guanajatabeyes were driven to the west of the island by the arrival of two subsequent waves of migrants, the

13. Cuban History: The Treaty Of Zanjon
An overview of Cuban history, up until the Spanish uprising of 1895, which was a cause of the Spanish American War.
Cuban history: The treaty of Zanjon
After nearly two centuries of assaults by pirates and foreign adventurers Havana was captured by an English fleet under Lord Albermarle, backed up by fourteen thousand soldiers. Their booty amounted to over three and a half million dollars. In a few months Cuba was restored to Spain, and a new era of peace with great prosperity was inaugurated under the sagacious guidance of Captain-General Las Casas, who entered upon his duties in 1790. The Cubans remained loyal to Spain despite the deposition of the Spanish royal family by Napoleon.
A party of moderates was formed, whose aim was to induce Spain to come to terms granting civil and religious rights to Cuba without impairing its subjection to Spain. This effort ended in a heavier taxation. President Polk expressed American sympathy by his proposal to buy Cuba for a million dollars. In 1858 the Senate raised our bid to thirty million dollars. From 1868 until the interference of the United States over the loss of the Maine the island was in a state of chronic revolt, involving incalculable loss to the people and to Spain, ill to be borne by an impoverished population but unmistakably foreshadowing their speedy ejection of the fool-tyrant. It was admitted in the Spanish Cortes in 1876 that the employment of 145,000 soldiers in eight years in trying to stamp out the revolt had been an utter failure. So it continued until the end. Our selections are taken from "
The war between the Cuban forces, numbering about 60,000, and the 130,000 soldiers from Spain, raged furiously during 1897. There were loud demands from the American people, voiced by the Senate, that the government should in some way intervene, in the interests of justice. It was proposed to recognize the insurgents as belligerents, and demand independence for the island, as Spain had completely failed, after two years of vigorous effort to suppress the rising, to reduce the country to subjection. On the contrary, her methods had inflicted terrible sufferings and industrial ruin upon the non-combatant population.]

    Cuban History
    When Christopher Columbus arrived in Cuba for the first time on the 27th of October, 1492, and sailed around the Cuban Northeastern coast for forty days, he not only found lush vegetation, but also peaceful and naive aboriginals that presented him with cotton, a sort of spin yarn and small pieces of gold, all of which they would trade for valueless trinkets. Two years later, when he explored the South coast of Cuba during his second trip, the Admiral realized that there were several groups of indigenous inhabitants. The natives from the Eastern region of the country that were traveling with him could not understand the language of those that lived in the Western region. Settlements on the island started four thousand years before this encounter with several migrations: the first wave most likely came from the North through Florida, and then several migration waves most likely came from the Orinoco River through the arc of the Antilles. Spanish settlers established the raising of cattle, sugarcane, and tobacco as Cuba's primary economic pursuits. As the native Indian population died out, African slaves were imported to work the ranches and plantations. Slavery was abolished in 1886.

It is understood that the forms of government of a country must be adapted to that country's nature, that absolute ideas must be expressed in relative forms or formal errors will bring their downfall, that for liberty to work, it must be sincere and complete, that if a republic does not open its arms to all and advance with all, the republic dies.

Cuba is one of the countries with an ideal climate for the crop. Castro claimed that an economy based on Cuba allowed capitalist countries to explot Cuba. Then he changed his mind and focused a hufe national effort to produce 10 million tons. To support the Cuban economy, the Soviets bought huge quantities of sugar at above market prices.

    Independence Struggle
    Most of Spain's American colonies achieved independence during or after the Naoleonic Wars of the early 19th century. Spain held on to Cuba and and Puertp Rico afer defeats in South and Central Ameruica. Cubans began their struggke for indeopendence at mid-century. The first major armed action was the War of the Ten Years (1868-1878). A poorly equipped army of 8,000 Cubans fought a valiant struggle against aell-armed Spanish army which suffered some 80,000 casualties. The revolutionaries which failed to fight a centrally organized campaign finally had to give up with the Pact of the Trench, although General Antonio Maceo issued the protest of Baragu. A second insurrection was organized by Jose Mart (1895). The Army of Liberation was better irganized than in 1868 and was commanded by General Maximum Go'mez. The Army of Liberation eventually fielded about 50,000 men, but only about half were armed.
