Young Fidel Castro asked FDR for $10
BBC |
"In 1940, 12-year-old Cuban boy Fidel Castro wrote to US President Franklin Roosevelt to request a $10 note. The hand-written letter, embellished with an elaborate signature, has been unearthed by the US National Archives and Records Administration... 'Never I have not seen a ten dollars bill green American and I would like to have one of them,' the future Cuban leader wrote... About 19 years later, his guerrilla campaign toppled the seven-year military rule of Cuban President Fulgeneio Batista and, at 32, Mr Castro became the country's new leader."
