Distinguished Speaker Series

American Volunteers in Cuba’s Insurgent Army: New Discoveries about a Volunteer Cavalry’s 1898 Incursion into Cuba During the Spanish-American War with Paul Michael Taylor

November 30, 2023 | 6:00pm-7:00pm

This presentation reports on a research and public outreach project being carried out by the Smithsonian Institution in cooperation with the San Carlos Institute. Taylor will discuss the role of Cuban-American civilian volunteers who mustered at Tampa and places it within the broader history of the Spanish-American War and the history of Florida and of US-Cuban relations.

Funding for this program was sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support from The Helmerich Trust, Aloys & Carol Metty and The John & Marilyn Rintamaki Family Charitable Fund.
