May 19, 1895: We remember Jose Marti


Jose Marti was killed on May 19, 1895.   His death on the battlefield came after years of speeches, articles and contributions to the cause of Cuban independence from Spain. 

His life was short but very consequential:
“Sometimes called the Apostle of the Cuban Revolution, José Martí was born on January 28, 1853. He showed a talent for writing and revolutionary politics at an early age. First exiled from Cuba in 1871, Martí spent much of his life abroad. In 1895, he returned to Cuba to fight for its independence. He died on the battlefield.”
There will be remembrances of Marti’s death in Castro’s enslaved Cuba and among Cuban Americans living in the US.
My conviction is that Marti’s spirit of freedom for Cuba will be with those of us who want to end this totalitarian regime run by the Castro family.
