Most Floridians are aware of the name Jose Martí and his significance to the Spanish-American War; however, many of these same people fail to understand that Martí and this war are just the tail end, albeit the triumphant end, of a long struggle for independence that lasted approximately thirty years. From 1868-1878, Cuban rebels fought for Independence in what has become to be called, “The Ten Years War” (Poyo: 1979, 289). While the wealthy Cuban elites relocated to New York, it cannot be forgotten that it was the displaced Cubans in Key West, Florida that largely financed the military efforts of The Ten Years War. Not only did they raise the majority of the money, but also supported the campaign themselves by joining different expeditions and raids throughout the war effort. In this account, I hope to give you a better understanding of how the thousands of Cubans who fled to Key West during the diaspora of the Ten Years War, while almost forgotten, became the foundation layers of the Spanish-American War, and the baton that would pass between generational, Cuban, rebel leaders against the Spanish presence on their island.

A new era began in 1432 with the ascendency of Cosimo de Medici (13890-1464). As a wealthy banker, Giovanni de Medici (1360-1429), his father, laid the foundation for the staggering fortune that Cosimo used to oust his opponents, including the Albizzi dynasty, who wanted to control Florence and eliminate the powerful Medici dynasty. His inherited wealth also brought the Florentine republic under his control. After Francesco Sforza, a condottiere, or commander of a mercenary army came to power in Milan in 1450. Cosimo ended a war with the Milanese duchy.
