General Calixto Garcia y Iniguez, Cuban Liberation Army / Ejercito Libertador Cubano.
Today in 1839 was born General Calixto Garcia y Iniguez, in Holguin, Cuba. He was the Commander of the Cuban Liberation Army. He died of Pneumonia while on a trip to New York City, on December 11th, 1898. The famous book "A Message to Garcia" was written by Elbert Hubbard based on the famous trip to find Garcia and the Cuban Liberation Army by Major Andrew Rowan during the Spanish American War. It is a true classic and I highly recommend it. /// You can listen to our Radio Show by clicking on this link
