Nuestras voces: personajes hispanos y latinos de la historia estadounidense (Our Voices: Spanish and Latino Figures of American History)

Few know about the Cuban woman who, disguised as a man,
fought for the Confederates in the American Civil War. Or the 1947 federal court
case brought on by a Mexican–Puerto Rican woman that desegregated schools in
California—seven years before Brown v. Board. Or the Spanish general whose
decisive victories against the British in the American Revolutionary War ensured
the Colonies' success. These biographies highlight the contributions of these
incredible—and too often unrecognized—Spanish and Latino figures to American
history, celebrating the pivotal moments where historical figures with a Spanish
or Latino background indelibly changed U.S. history.
