Che Guevara "The revolution is not an apple that falls when it is ripe. You have to make it fall."

Che Guevara was a prominent communist figure in the Cuban Revolution (1956–59) who went on to become a guerrilla leader in South America. Executed by the Bolivian army in 1967, he has since been regarded as a martyred hero by generations of leftists worldwide. Guevara’s image remains a prevalent icon of leftist radicalism and anti-imperialism.
The Cuban Revolution was an armed revolt conducted by Fidel Castro's 26th of July Movement and its allies against the right-wing authoritarian government of Cuban President Fulgencio Batista. The revolution began in July 1953, and continued sporadically until the rebels finally ousted Batista on 1 January 1959, replacing his government with a revolutionary socialist state. The 26th of July Movement later reformed along communist lines, becoming the Communist Party in October 1965. Castro’s organized attack set up on the eastern end of Santiago de Cuba against the military barracks ended in despair and failure due to government.

This is a complete map of the Island of Cuba which Che Guevara risked his life to free from the horrid government at the time and then to protect it later on.

This is the man himself Che Guevara. He is one of the most historical people in Latin American History for what he did.

This is President Fulgencio Batista, the horrid governor who had Cuba under a leftist government and had Cuba discriminated against. In 1959 he was overthrown by Che Guevara and his partner (soon to be governor of Cuba) Fidel Castro.

The 2 Main Themes Che Guevara ties into are, Revolution because Guevara had left Latin America for Mexico, to meet up with Fidel Castro and his brother, to set up a revolution in fear of the U.S always opposing leftist governments. He eventually did succeed in overthrowing the Cuban dictator at the time, and Cultural Interaction because Guevara had traveled or migrated around the Latin America until he eventually went to Mexico and became a Cuban citizen, he then went to Bolivia where he was eventually shot and killed.
To this day Che Guevara holds together a very important piece of Latin America history and is fully respected for that. What he did for the people he knew and loved was a sign of true bravery and determination and for that Che Geuvara is not only a part of history but true image of a man.
