Garcia Surrenders to Spain

What occurred

Calixto Garcia, the president of the Cuban Revolutionary Committee, left New York to provide support in Cuba. When two prominent Black officers of the new insurrection surrendered to Spain in June of 1880, Spanish officials used this as proof that the insurrection was a race war. Furthermore, they used the surrender to convince Garcia that Blacks would not recognize his leadership or position in their insurgence. On August 3, 1880, Garcia surrendered himself to Spain.
