Who’s Henry Reeve? Nobel Peace Prize for Cuban medicine, perpetuates Brooklyn’s son (+ Photos)

By Lázaro David Najarro Pujol

May, 2020.- The American Henry Reeve, El Inglesito(The Englishman), is known throughout the world more for the work of the International Contingent of Doctors Specialized in Disaster Situations and Serious Epidemics that is honored with his name, than for the solidarity of the brave combatant who gave his life for the independence of Cuba against Spanish colonialism.

When Ignacio Agramonte’s fall in combat was officially verified by the Cuban Government in Arms, immediately, on June 13, Major General Máximo Gómez left to take over the leadership of the Center Department.

On the 30th, Gómez’s forces crossed the town of Jobabo and on July 1, they camped at the La Aurora farm in Najasa, where the Cavalry Headquarters was located. Gomez is received on July 6 by Inglesito and General Julio Sanguily. That day, with the announcement of the arrival of the escort, Reeve spoke for the first time as El Mayor, referring to Ignacio Agramonte. (Leer más en esta entrada)

From the command bridge of the Tiburon motor fisherman, from the Cuban Fishing Fleet, I used to contemplate the Bay of Havana, in my stage as a seafarer, after successfully completing the course in sponge cultivation, a profession that I have never I exercised because of my young age.

I stayed on the boat for about five months from the time I set sail for the fishing work at Golpe de Campeche and Ciudad del Carmen, both in Mexico, until my return to the largest of the Antilles.
In the Port of Havana the fishing vessel Tiburon was anchored. Those of us who did not reside in the Cuban capital, very few, stayed to look after the boat. And from the motor ship he contemplated the Bay, considered one of the largest and safest in America and the World.
Its huge bag accommodated the vessels of the Fishing Fleet and the merchants that arrived at the port. It is a really impressive and pleasant landscape. La Bahía (founded in 1519) witnessed the explosion of the American battleship Maine on February 15, 1898, a tricky event that served as a pretext for the United States to intervene in the 1895 War waged by Cubans against Spain.
