PASO DE LAS DAMAS, TAGUASCO
Paso de las Damas, another place in this historic municipality, is where Major General Serafín Sánchez Valdivia fell in mortal combat. He was a hero of the three wars of Independence.
Serafín Sánchez Valdivia was born in Sancti Spíritus, in 1846. He joined the insurrectional movement in Las Villas from the beginning. He fought bravely during the War of Ten Years (Guerra de los Diez Años) and also was among those who organised the Small War (Guerra Chiquita) movement in 1879. He was a good friend of José Martí and carried out formidable revolutionary propaganda in Key Hueso.
In the War of 95 (Guerra del 95) he planned and fought successful battles, winning the admiration of Gómez and Maceo. On November 18th of 1896, at Paso de las Damas, during a rough encounter with the Spanish troops, superior in number to the Cubans, General Serafín Sánchez was mortally wounded. Still astride, he exclaimed “They have killed me. That is nothing. Continue the march.”
