As I took the time to reflect upon my previous blog post, I noted that the author Carrie Gibson (2019) had included Ileana Ros-Lehtinen as the first U.S. Cuban-American elected U.S. Congress-woman within her book (2019). In addition as I have been taking the time to learn about the Cuba-America political community, I would likeContinue reading “AMERICA’S AMERICAN-CUBAN POLITICAL COMMUNITY.”
Americas Heritage is a blog post page that is created to contain all of the chapter summaries and related blog posts derived from the book entitled: “EL NORTE, The Epic and Forgotten Story of Hispanic North America” (Gibson 2019). This page is created for the ease of website navigation. Thank You and Welcome!
Within this writing I provide a summary of points of interests within this chapter 11 of the book entitled “EL NORTE.” II was particularly interested in the events that led to the Cuban-Spanish war, and that even as war took place the United States was not able to acquire Cuba. The U.S. continued to gain territory with wars. President Roosevelt became philosophical about the act of war. The claiming of territory was known as American Imperialism.
Within this writing I summarize Chapter 9 of my reading from the book entitled “ELNORTE.” I make historical and present day connections, especially to focus upon the Texas cotton industry, the Texas Annexation and the Mexico-America war.
