AGRAMONTE, Ignacio, Cuban revolutionist, born in Puerto Principe, Cuba, in 1841; died 11 May 1873. He studied law in Havana, and was admitted to the bar in 1867. When the insurrection against Spanish rule broke out in the eastern part of the island in 1868, Agramonte took a prominent part in the uprising of the Camagiiey district in November and in February 1869, he was appointed secretary to the provisional government of the insurrectionists. He was also a member of the Cuban congress, and one of the signers of the act freeing the slaves in the island. Finally he took the field, and held a commission as Major-General of the forces operating in the Camagiiey district, where he distinguished himself in many bloody contests with the Spanish troops.
