Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results and will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early to late evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
When the 1957 article was published, even the U.S. embassy in Havana was not even sure if Castro was still alive; Fulgencio Batista’s regime had claimed in December 1956 that Castro had died. But Castro’s resistence movement was revived by the 1957 series of articles by Herbert L. Matthews, and by 1959, Castro was in power.
