Document from Kuo Min Tang, the Chinese Nationalist Party in Bayamo Cuba.

Signed by Julio Lau as President. Second signature from the Secretary.

Letter is addressed to the Provincial authorities of Oriente regarding a New Directive undertaken by the party.

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.
