Fidel Castro (R) waves to the people in Havana in this file photo from January 8, 1959. Castro and 81 other combatants started a revolutionary war against the U.S.-backed regime of Fulgencio Batista on December 2, 1956 and over the next two years they conducted a guerrilla struggle that won increasing popular support, culminating in the revolution's triumph on January 1, 1959 when Batista finally fled the country. Castro and his troops took Havana on January 8. Cuba celebrates the 45th anniversary of the revolution on January 1, 2004.
