event image
The Ten Years War also known as The Big War began on 10 October 1868 under the leadership of the attorney Carlos Manuel de C├ęspedes and seconded by a group of patriots in the sugar mill La Demajagua, calling for liberty and independence of the island.

During the first few days the uprising almost failed. C├ęspedes attacked the small town of Yara on October 11, from which this revolution took its name, even though the attack on Yara was a failure. The October 10 date is commemorated in Cuba as a national holiday under the name "Grito de Yara" ("Shout of Yara").
