* Special Video presentation of Fidel Castro's 90th Birthday
On July 26, 1953, 135 young revolutionaries led by Fidel Castro boldly assaulted the Moncada Barracks in Santiago de Cuba, the country's second-largest military fortress, while two smaller groups led by Abel Santamaria and Raúl Castro targeted important adjacent buildings. Though the Moncada Barracks did not fall, the revolutionary action was highly significant. It signalled the future battles that were to triumph in 1959 when the Cuban people celebrated the defeat of Fulgencio Batista's brutal dictatorship. As Fidel declared later, "Moncada taught us to turn setbacks into victories."
