Thanks TSgt Joe C. for letting us know that on January 7, 1959 just six days after the fall of the Fulgencio Batista dictatorship in Cuba, U.S. officials recognize the new provisional government of the island nation.
FYI my wife's family is Cuban. My wife escaped from Cuba at age 14 and later she helped fund her parents to leave the country. Roughly half of her extended family left Cuba while others stayed including a couple Christian Pastors. The decades that followed stripped the churches of all but the faithful.
Over the past decade the genuine churches have blossomed again, in may cases.

The Cuban government has had a most interesting history in its relations with the U.S. At the time of the Spanish-American War of 1898, the U.S. invaded and liberated Cuba from the strong hand methods of Spain. The treaty ending the war, the Treaty of Versailles, among other things cost the U.S. government many tens of millions of dollars for public lands and improvements in both Cuba & the Philippines. Cuba was considered an American protectorate until after WW1 which at that time hands came off Cuban affairs so they could go on their own way. The various little dictators did not garner serious American attention until Castro and his pack of men. The Communist government came too close to war with America on several occasions; however, now that diplomacy has been restored between Cuba & the U.S., there has been many occurrences of microwave radiation harming people in the American embassy.
