Timeline of key dates in US relations with #Cuba, AP Story

The Associated Press published an article on August 14, 2015 of the history of the U.S. disagreements with Cuba, through the new accords.

"THE START
Fidel Castro's rebels take power as dictator Fulgencio Batista flees Cuba on Jan 1, 1959. The United States soon recognizes the new government. But relations begin to sour as Americans criticize summary trials and executions of Batista loyalists. In 1960 Cuba nationalizes U.S.-owned oil refineries after they refuse to process Soviet oil. Nearly all other U.S. businesses are expropriated soon afterward."
