Che sees his last day on this episode of This Day In History!
On this episode of This Day In History, Tony and Armand tell us about controversial Argentine Marxist, Che Guevara. Che was a revolutionary, physician, author, guerrilla leader, diplomat, and military theorist that spent his life fighting against the spread of colonialism throughout Latin America. “The struggle against imperialism, for liberation from colonial or neocolonial shackles, which is being carried out by means of political weapons, arms, or a combination of the two, is not separate from the struggle against backwardness and poverty,” Che said in speech in Algeria on February 24, 1965. He also played a key role in helping Castro in the Cuban Revolution. He then went on to start a revolution in Bolivia where he was later captured and executed by the Bolivian Army on this day in 1967.
Also, we say happy birthday to Charles Rudolph Walgreen, founder of Walgreens, who was born on this day in 1873, and we say happy birthday to Beatles member, John Lennon, who was born on this day in 1940.
