Puerto Rico’s Complicated History with the United States
Center for Latin American Studies' faculty member, Dr. Lillian Guerra, was interviewed for a History Channel article in their publication History Stories.
"It all started with the Spanish-American War, which began in the spring of 1898, when Puerto Rico was a Spanish territory. The U.S. invaded Puerto Rico not only because it was a Spanish territory, but also due to its interests in developing a sugar market there, says Lillian Guerra, a history professor at the University of Florida."
