these are a few of my favorite things:

fuckyeahlatinamericanhistory:

During the United States’ Civil War, the Union Navy had a ship called the USS Santiago de Cuba. Builtin Brooklyn, New York and commissioned in 1861, its career spanned four active years of service in the Atlantic before being decommissioned in the Summer of 1865 and spending the next 34 years as a commercial ship.
Cuba itself was still under colonial Spanish rule during the time of the US Civil War, which took place a decade after Narciso López’ failed US-backed filibustering campaigns to “liberate” the island and seven years after the also failed Ostend Manifesto proposed purchasing the island from Spain.
