Document from the Chinese Nationalist Party in Cuba
Rare document from Kuo MinTang, the Chinese Nationalist Party in Bayamo, Cuba signed by President Chohen. The second signature is from the Secretary.
The Kuo Min Tang was the Chinese political party that ruled mainland China 1927–48 and then moved to Taiwan. The name translates as “China’s National People’s Party” and was historically referred to as the Chinese Nationalists.
The Party was initially founded on 23 August 1912, by Sun Yat-sen but dissolved in November 1913. It reformed on October 10th 1919, again led by Sun Yat-sen, and became the ruling party in China. After Sun’s death, the party was dominated from 1927 to 1975 by Chiang Kai-shek. Though the KMT lost the civil war with the Communist Party of China in 1949, the party took control of Taiwan and remains a major political party of the Republic of China based in Taiwan.
