Revolution Reflection, by Anthony

The Cuban War of Independence (1895-1898) was one of many political revolutions. Some causes of this particular revolution were that the Spanish were being unfair and they had high taxes and strict laws on the Cubans. Cuba was so limited in trading that they could only trade with Spain. Some effects of this war were that Cuba gained independence, they had fair laws after they won their independence, and in 1902, U.S. Officials left Cuba and Cuba gained complete independence but remained under U.S. protection. However, i wasn’t for long because soon after, Fidel Castro came in power. My teammate and I worked well together. We weren’t always the most productive, but we always had a good time. In the end, we made it and had fun on the way.
