Wildly famous during the mid-nineteenth century as the leader of a filibuster, a clandestine army, Lopez led the first armed challenge to Spains long domination over Cuba.

Although many southerners did assist Lopez, the web of intrigue that sustained his conspiracy also included New York City, steamship magnates, penny press editors, Cuban industrialists, and nothern Democratic urban bosses.Drawn from archives in both the United States and Cuba and enlivened by first-person accounts and reports from federal special agents assigned to spy on Lopez, Fatal Glory holds appeal for both scholars and the general reader with an interest in Cuba, U.S.

foreign policy, or the U.S. sectional crisis of the 1850s.
