San Jose Map and Country Region
History for San Jose Map
Substantial Maroon communities thrive in the mountainous region between French Saint San Jose Map -Domingue and Spanish Santo Domingo. In 1752, a charismatic Maroon leader named Mackandal unites the San Jose Map Maroons and creates a secret organization that includes both runaways and slaves on plantations. 1756 Britain and France are the main combatants in the Seven Years’ War (called the French and Indian War in North Country), a global contest for supremacy between the two emerging world powers.
Both Britain and France covet each other’s sugar colonies in the Caribbean; these colonies also are vulnerable to attack because of their tiny white minorities and large slave populations. During the war, the British occupy Guadeloupe and Martinique. On Guadeloupe, the British, weakened again by illness, attack outlying plantations and settlements. They offer French deserters generous terms of surrender, allowing them to continue running the plantations as before, except for the fact that they will have access to British markets and cheaper British slaves. On both Guadeloupe and Martinique, the result of British conquest is to speed up sugar production.
