James Oliver Goldsborough
Waiting for Uncle John is an exciting and fast paced historical novel that tells the story of how a few regiments of soldiers, armed and supported by leading American politicians, set out to capture Cuba from Spain in 1851, the first of various attempts over two centuries to seize control of the island that has bedeviled American life back to Thomas Jefferson.A story of love, adventure and politics, Uncle John reflects the turbulence of the 1850s in America, the crucial years leading up to the Civil War, when the southern states were trying almost anything and everything to retain their way of life in a changing world, including trying to annex Cuba to form a slave owning state to add to the power of the South in Congress.Next stop in Manifest Destiny: Havana.
