The day of the outbreak of the war for the independence of Cuba (24/02)

February 24 is a memorable date for the Cuban people - the Day of the beginning of the war for the independence of Cuba.

After the end of the Ten Years' War (the first of three wars for Cuba's independence from Spain, which lasted from 1868 to 1878), the people of Cuba were in a state of revolutionary unrest. Spain was unable to contain the crowds rushing for independence.

On February 24, 1895, a new revolutionary movement began, which began to gain popularity among the general population.
