Here’s a recent photo of the monument where my great grandfather, Jose Ignacio “Cheo” Hernandez Lanuez was shot by the Cuban Conservative government forces in the rebellion known as “La Chambelona” by the opposing Liberal party of which he was a member after the government of Menocal stole the elections from the Liberal candidate.

My grandfather planted those areca palms from his house in Gasmuri and My father remembers that every year since 1917, members of the Hernandez family made a trip to this location to honor our fallen ancestor.
