America and Spain's Civil War, 1936-1939   

Spain's civil war meant different things to different Americans-a diplomatic crisis, a call to arms, a business opportunity, a religious war, a political problem, a journalism story, and a foreshadowing of worse to come. For about 3,000 Americans it meant answering the call of their convictions to lend a hand while FDR wanted no part of the matter. For years afterward, for the survivors of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade, it meant "Viva La Quince Brigada!"
