Little War


August 26, 1879


Little War

What occurred

Rebels led by Calixto Garcia fought for independence from Spain in what was seen as in some cases a continuation of the "Ten Years War". After Calixto had been released from prison following the "Pact of Zanjon" which ended the 10 years war, he organized the Cuban Revolutionary Committee and the committee declared war on Spain in 1878. However, due to no foreign aid, public exhaustion following the 10 years war, and lack of supplies and experienced leadership the revolution failed and was quickly quelled by Spainish forces by 1880.
