Bay of Pigs Invasion - Batista Resigned and Fled into Exile

Time: Wednesday Dec 31, 1958

Place: Cuba

Details: Between December 1956 and 1959, Castro led a guerrilla army against the forces of Batista from his base camp in the Sierra Maestra mountains. Batista's repression of revolutionaries had earned him widespread unpopularity, and by 1958 his armies were in retreat. On 31 December 1958, Batista resigned and fled into exile, taking with him an amassed fortune of more than US$300,000,000.
