Cuba was discovered by Columbus in 1492 and, except for the brief British occupancy in 1762–63, remained a Spanish possession until 10 Dec. 1898. Sovereignty was then relinquished under the terms of the Treaty of Paris at the end of the Spanish-American War. Cuba became an independent republic in 1901, although the USA continued to influence Cuban internal affairs and foreign policy until 1934.
