During the last few months of the war an American ship called the "Maine" was sunked in the Havana bay.
This particular incident was the one that got the United States involved in the war the Cubans were fighting to liberate their country from the Spanish Colony.
When the Americans arrived in Cuba they called the brave Cuban farmers that were fighting the Spanish Colony "War Heros."
However, the Cubans didn't speak English and for them "War Heroes" meant "Gua Jeeros." As the time went by the countrymen ended up being "Guajiros" (Guajeeros)
  Till this day the Cuban farmer or countrymen are called "Guajiros."
