Cuba, Us Intervention in

Cuba, Us Intervention in (See also Spanish-American War, Bay of Pigs invasion, and Cuban missile crisis) By treaty in 1903, the US leased Guantanamo Bay as a military base for 99 years. In September 1906, 2,900 marines landed at Havana to impose a ceasefire on a civil war; the US added 5,000 soldiers and occupied the island with an Army of Cuban Pacification until 1909. In 1912 a USMC brigade landed to protect American sugar interests from rebels. In 1917 a USMC brigade landed to guard US plantations and railroads from rebels, and was not fully withdrawn until 1922.
