Most of Spain's New World empire achieved independence by the 1820s, but Cuba, Puerto Rico and the Philippines remained under Spanish control. In 1868, Cuban rebels declared the island's independence from Spain, which set off an intense, but unsuccessful, ten-year guerrilla war.

This illustration shows Cuban rebels escorting women and children along a trail.
