This chapter discusses the visit of Josephine Herbst in Realengo 18. An account of Pablo de la Torriente Brau's visit to Realengo 18 is also reported. Herbst is a woman journalist and novelist from the USA. de la Torriente Brau is a left-wing activist working in Havana. The accounts left by these two writers inscribed its name on the history of Oriente. Since de la Torriente's visit, Realengo 18 had now become an issue of truly national importance. It is suggested that the peasants of the Realengo 18 wrote glorious pages of history, of defiance against oppression and against big landholders.
