The war was reinforced in the eastern provinces of Oriente, Camagüey and Las Villas, during the days of September 13 to 16th of 1895, due to the fact that a meeting was held in Jimaguayú, a historical site of the restructuring by Agramonte. The representatives of the Cuban revolutionaries in arms gathered in order to establish the laws by which the young Revolution would continue its path to victory.
It was General Máximo Gómez who chose the spot, it was where in 1873 Major General Ignacio Agramonte fell in brutal combat for freedom.
Here, the illustrious Dominican placed his troops in order to protect those that were to reflect on the Carta Magna, a document that would succeed the Guáimaro Constitution of 1869.
Everything was ready so that the chosen patriots were able to constitute the Revolutionary Parliament in Jimaguayú, whose sessions were held in a humble “bohio” made of palm leaves, under the presidency of Salvador Cisneros Betancourt.
The Constitution of Jimaguayú established, like its predecessor of Guaímaro in 1869, a centralised government of the Republic, but unlike its predecessor, it joined the legislative and executive powers in one legal body.
This reduced the size of the power structure which allowed faster decisions to be made on issues of the State, a result of the experiences of the Ten Year War (Guerra de los 10 Años).
