My History is not the best, so although I tried to make this as accurate as possible, there's likely some errors. Please let me know if you find any!

Interesting, this page (which was my source for much of this) claims otherwise. But reading into the 1898 Paris Treaty indeed shows that Spain handed over Cuba to USA as a protectorate.

Anyway, I have updated the year so Spain is correct.

Yeah, there was that whole War of 1898 thing that put the U.S. on the world stage as an empire on the make.

Interesting quiz, but I don't like 'owned' in the title! Controlled? Believed in their sorry heads it belonged to them?
