ACERCA DE Héctor L. Díaz

Héctor L. Díaz, nacido en Puerto Rico, ha tenido una pasión por la historia desde que creció en su isla natal. Actualmente, trabaja como analista para el Departamento de Defensa en Maryland, investigó y es autor de una resolución que reconoce la importancia de la participación hispana en el proceso de independencia estadounidense.

La resolución es ahora parte de los libros de texto y cursos de historia que se imparten en el estado. Díaz ha investigado las contribuciones de los hispanos a la Revolución Americana desde 1984, cuando escuchó por primera vez sobre ellos durante un viaje a Yorktown Battlefield Park, en Virginia. A partir de ese momento, y luego de mucha investigación, comenzó a escribir artículos y dar charlas sobre el tema. En 1993 fundó The Hispanics in History Cultural Organisation Inc., que se dedica a difundir los hechos históricos hispanos más destacados de la historia mundial. La organización también cuenta con un grupo de recreación que revive a las tropas hispanas que lucharon en la Guerra de Independencia de los Estados Unidos.
