Professor Lisandro Perez talked about Cuban immigration to America, beginning with the sugar trade in 1823, as well as General Aguilera’s attempts at reuniting the Cuban-American factions during the First War for Cuban Independence.

Cuba’s first war for independence began on the 10th of October 1868, when a sugar mill owner and his followers declared independence from Spain. Because of a high volume of trade with New York, many Cubans in the United States held powerful positions within the resistance movement - providing financial backing for Cuban revolutionaries. The Cuban exiles, however, suffered from rivalries and infighting so General Francisco Vicente Aguilera was sent to New York to ease tensions. close
