1: Cuba has been producing sugar cane since the 1800's. | The flag of Cuba was adopted on May 20, 1902, containing a field with three blue stripes and two white stripes, and a red equilateral triangle at the hoist with a white 5-pointed star.
2: Cubans come in all different shapes and sizes and are very native to the Cuban area. They also live in other regions but primarily come from Cuba.
3: The Spanish flag was adopted December 6th, 1978.
4: The earliest modern humans inhabiting Spain are believed to have been Neolithic peoples who may have arrived in the Iberian Peninsula as early as 35,000–40,000 years ago and have been here every since.

16: Lusitania Sinking was launched June 7th, 1906 and was torpedoed by Germany on May 7th, 1915, which was an event that triggered World War 1
17: This telegram, written by German Foreign Secretary Arthur Zimmermann and received by the German Ambassador to Mexico on January 19, 1917, is a coded message sent to Mexico, proposing a military alliance against the United States. The obvious threats to the United States contained in the telegram inflamed American public opinion against Germany and helped convince Congress to declare war against Germany in 1917.
18: Theodore Roosevelt was the 26th president of the Untied States. Roosevelt strongly supported the Allies and demanded a harsher policy against Germany.
19: Roosevelt's Corollary states that The United States will intervene in conflicts between European Nations and Latin American countries to enforce legitimate claims of the European powers, rather than having the Europeans press their claims directly.
21: After initially opposing World War I (1914-1918), Wilson led the U.S. into the war and drafted the peace plan that ended it. Wilson then fought to create the League of Nations, the forerunner of the United Nations. | President Woodrow Wilson
22: Airplane | Machine Gun | Submarine
23: These are just a few of the weapons that were used during World War 1.
24: The League of Nation's task was simple - to ensure that war never broke out again. The League of Nations was to be based in Geneva, Switzerland. This choice was natural as Switzerland was a neutral country and had not fought in World War One. No one could dispute this choice especially as an international organization such as the Red Cross was already based in Switzerland.
