Che Guevara met an undignified death in a dilapidated school house in Bolivia, at the hands of a CIA backed counter revolution. The generation that would see him the most had not been born yet, and many of that generation would not know why this well drawn face is on hats, shirts and posters at Hot Topic. They won't know the face was communism's last best hope, shot down after the imperialist world joined forces to crush the possibility of true communism in the known world. Adolescence Ernesto Guevara de la Serna was born in Rosario, Argentina, on June 14th, 1928. He was the eldest of five children, and was of Irish and Spanish decent.

On his brithday and final day at the colony, Ernesto made a toast to a united South America, to the stunned silence of his party. They rafted down the Amazon, and Ernesto returned to Argentina by flight in April 1953. Events and Travels in Guetemala Ernesto, convinced
