The Timetable History of Cuba (http://historyofcuba.com) has completed a quiet but major redesign and rebuilding process that makes the site more efficient and user friendly. Although the basic look and functionality of the site remains, new features have been incorporated into an expanded navigational structure and streamlined design.

Recent changes include:

  • FAST FACTS - a section of quick, readable snapshots of Cuban history, including topics such as: the Ten-Year War, Fulgencio Batista, Narciso López, origins of the Cuban flag, The Little War (of 1880), Guantanamo Bay, etc. This section also serves as a quick starting points to larger articles and segments on topics such as José Martí, Antonio Maceo, Bay of Pigs, the Missile Crisis, etc.
  • EXPANDED GALLERIES - There are many new photos, most of them fully restored and looking better than ever.
  • New PRESS Section - A place to find press releases and related announcements.
  • REORGANIZED FOLDER STRUCTURE - Although this is invisible to users, it contributes significantly to improved usability and facilitates accessibility.
  • IMPROVED NAVIGATION - You can move easily around the site, and everything is always a few clicks away.

The Timetable History of Cuba is written and compiled by Jerry A. Sierra, who was born in Cuba, immigrated to the U.S. with his family in 1969, and has been an avid student of Cuban history since his late teens. He says it was the lack of accurate information in text books and the media that inspired him to undertake this ambitious endeavor. "I was shocked," he recalls, "that in the age of information it would be so difficult to find books and articles that accurately depict Cuban history."

THC is a work in progress, updated as frequently as several times a week.
