HistoryEdit

In the late 19th century, San Juan Antiguo called Plaza de San Juan is where Spain had its war fortifications and military buildings.

Puerto Rico was ceded by Spain in the aftermath of the Spanish–American War under the terms of the Treaty of Paris of 1898 and became an unincorporated territory of the United States. In 1899, the United States Department of War conducted a census of Puerto Rico.[3]
