This day in Cuban history…….1959

We recalled recently the 55th anniversary of January 1, 1959.

Here is what happened a week later:

"Just six days after the fall of the Fulgencio Batista dictatorship in Cuba, U.S. officials recognize the new provisional government of the island nation.

Despite fears that Fidel Castro, whose rebel army helped to overthrow Batista, might have communist leanings, the U.S. government believed that it could work with the new regime and protect American interests in Cuba."

We know how that turned out!
