As the nineteenth century drew to a close, Spain’s over-seas empire was crumbling. After ten years of warfare (1868-1878) Cuba had again submitted to uneasy Spanish control but the world-wide depression of 1893, combined with the devastating effects on Cuba’s economy of the United States tariff of 1894, increased unrest to the point where armed revolt broke out again in February of 1895.
