- The situation at that time was part of the US effort in facing the Spanish Empire in Americas.
- The context is based on the Spanish-American War that lasted through three months at least in 1898 and it was settled because of Cuban's Demands that asked for the US helping force for setting them free from the Spanish Ruling.
