Character is the result of two things: mental attitude and the way we spend our time. It is what we think and what we do that make us who we are.

Elbert Hubbard


The Spanish-American war of 1898 lasted only a few months. Yet one minor episode in the war became the basis for an inspiring story that would reverberate for decades to follow.

Andrew Rowan was a lieutenant sent by President McKinley to make contact with Cuban insurgents led by General Calixto Garcia, America's allies in the fight against Spain.

Although the details of Rowan's mission were embellished, the story was picked up by essayist and philosopher Elbert Hubbard as an example of courage, loyalty, and dedication to carrying out orders.

Widely circulated and even adapted into two films, A Message to Garcia has come to represent the importance of getting the job done.
