The Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum is proud to announce the 17th Maynard Sundman LectureWednesday, Dec. 9, at 4 p.m. ET online, via Zoom. Admission to the lecture is free, but registration is required. Register here. The museum will welcome Yamil Kouri Jr. to discuss the topic of his most recent book “Under Three Flags, the Postal History of the Spanish-Cuban / American War,” the winner of the American Philatelic Society’s philatelic literature Grand Award in 2019.
Cubans had long sought liberation from Spanish rule during the mid-to-late 19th century, culminating in the Cuban War of Independence in 1895. After more than three years of fighting, neither side had a clear advantage. The United States’ declaration of war against Spain in April 1898 had a decisive impact on the conflict, leading to Spain’s surrender within a few months. Although brief, these coinciding military conflicts and the multi-country occupation of Cuba produced a rich and varied postal history legacy. The presentation will explore some of the fascinating aspects of this legacy that resulted in major global consequences.
