Cuba vs Partido Independiente de Color
Years 1911 1911 Battle deaths 1,050 The Negro Rebellion, also known as the Little Race War, the War of 1912, or The Twelve, was an armed conflict in Cuba, between Afro Cuban rebels on one side and the Cuban and US military on the other. It took place mainly in the eastern region of the island in 1912. The conflict involved the widespread massacre of Afro Cubans, by the Cuban Army, and an intervention by the United States military. Both the massacre and the presence of American troops quelled the violence so the unrest and the occupation ended after only a few weeks. The Afro Cubansleader, Evaristo Estenoz, was killed during the rebellion, and their party, the Independent Party of Color, was dissolved.The Afro Cubans lost between 3,000 to 6,000 killed, both combatants and non combatants. The results of the rebellion were disastrous; conditions in Cuba largely remained the same after 1912, except for the Independent Party of Color, which was dissolved.
