On the occasion of this November 18, 186th anniversary of the birth of Major General Máximo Gómez Báez, his imprint in Ciego de Ávila will once again take infinite dimensions.
The Colonel Simón Reyes History Museum in the capital city is the chosen place where the José Martí Cultural Society, as sponsor of the tribute, will pay tribute to the Dominican-Cuban hero.
Odalys Sánchez Méndez, President of the organization in the province, explained that due to the ideological fusion that assists him with Gómez and Martí, and as a continuator of the emancipation struggles in the country, the ceremony will also exalt the image of Commander in Chief Fidel Castro Ruz, since next 25th will be the sixth anniversary of his physical disappearance.
For this date, the Utility of Virtue and Honor Honors Distinction will be awarded as the highest awards conferred by the Jose Marti Cultural Society at the national level, the Commemorative Medal twenty-fifth Anniversary of the Martí Program, which will receive the collective of the Simón Reyes Museum, and individually Juan Pedro Melo Pacheco, who for a quarter of a century was at the head of the prestigious organization that bears the name of the Apostle of Cuba.
Máximo Gómez Báez, who has a rich trajectory of struggle for independence in the Greater of the Antilles, has among his highest merits to organize definitively in Ciego de Ávila together with Lieutenant General Antonio Maceo the Liberating Army, an epic that took place on November 27, 1895.
