(on the phone) Hey I'm sick in bed today.. what did I miss in history class?
(from his house) I'll be over in like ten minutes to explain the lesson...
So today, we talked about the Spanish-American war and the causes..
You mean like how Jose Marti led the Cuban revolt against Spain because he wanted freedom from imperialism?
Yeah!! There were other causes too, for example, yellow press. they exaggerated journalism to attract readers. Then president Mckinley came to power, and Enrique said he was weak. Then, there was the bombing of the USS Maine at the Havana Harbor, and then the war started.
Oh okay! Interesting! Thanks for letting me know.
