Anne Eller

University of North Carolina Press

One of Spain’s most perilous foreign adventures was the takeover of the Dominican Republic in March 1861.Anne Eller’s essay takes us to what will be less familiar territory for most readers. Dominican guerrilla fighters and their Haitian allies, many of them former slaves, forced Spain to leave in defeat. Their valiant struggle also inspired Cubans and Puerto Ricans to take up their own quest for independence from Spain.
