Hi everybody,

just out of curiosity: I managed to find out about former presidents Agüero, Márquez Sterling, Gavilán (Carlos Hevia, I assume) and San Martín (Grau), who feature in this variant, but the internet failed me with "Cpt. Blanco".

Anybody got any idea of whom he was and what role he played in Cuban history?

Thanks for any hints :-)

Marcus

I think you're talking about Ramon Blanco.

I found him as well, but didn't think he fits the bill, since he doesn't exactly qualify as a historical Batista substitute - after all, he died in 1906.

Perhaps one of his descendants?
