Tel: 1 (246) 434 3434 E-mail: To Navigation Bar The History of Grenada, Carriacou and Petit Martinique Grenada, like many of its island neighbours, owes is origins to violent volcanic activity - great fissures in the earth's crust were created when Caribbean Plate forced the oceanic Atlantic Plate to plunge towards the earth's hot mantle. There were small reminders of such activity in the volcanic disturbances of 1902 and 1920.
Humans were probably the last living organisms to appear and they arrived as long as 3 thousand years ago or more in the form of several different South American tribes - the Calvignoid, the Galibi, the Suazoids and finally, in around 1400, the warlike Caribs.
The Cannons at Fort George in the capital of Grenada have borne witness to much of the island's history over the last 250 years The Caribs were an aggressive lot and drove out many of their amerindian predecessors; it was a trait that was to stand them in good stead when the next wave of arrivals appeared - the Europeans.

Email The invasion of Grenada in late 1983 can be seen as a small part of the rivalry between the U.S. and Cuba during the Reagan years. A bloody coup in Grenada, along with a perceived threat to American students on the island provided the U.S. with an excellent excuse to eliminate a Marxist regime allied to Fidel Castro's Cuba.

President Reagan and his administration were concerned that the Marxist government of Prime Minister Maurice Bishop was allowing Cuba to gain undue influence in Grenada, specifically by constructing a military-grade airport with Cuban military engineers.

      < BACK TO HISTORY CONTENTS THE COMMONWEALTH CARIBBEAN is the term applied to the English- speaking islands in the Carribbean and the mainland nations of Belize (formerly British Honduras) and Guyana (formerly British Guiana) that once constituted the Caribbean portion of the British Empire. This volume examines only the islands of the Commonwealth Caribbean, which are Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, the Windward Islands (Dominica, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Grenada), Barbados, the Leeward Islands (Antigua and Barbuda, St. Christopher [hereafter, St. Kitts] and Nevis, the British Virgin Islands, Anguilla, and Montserrat), and the so-called Northern Islands (the Bahamas, the Cayman Islands, and the Turks and Caicos Islands). To the casual observer, these islands might appear to be too disparate to allow for a common discussion. Consider, for instance, the differences in population, size, income, ethnic composition, and political status among the various islands. Anguilla's 7,000 residents live on an island totaling 91 square kilometers, whereas Jamaica has a population of 2.3 million and a territory of nearly 11,000 square kilometers. The per capita gross domestic product (GDPsee Glossary) of the Cayman Islands is nearly fourteen times as large as that of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Trinidad and Tobago's population is evenly divided between blacks and East Indians, a pattern quite different from that on the other islands, on which blacks constitute an overwhelming majority. Although most of the islands are independent nations, five (the British Virgin Islands, Anguilla, Montserrat, the Cayman Islands, and the Turks and Caicos Islands) remain British dependencies.

    1790's Regional Hotspots
    When the British captured Trinidad in 1797 there where many battles for islands taking place in the Caribbean region.
    The European wars for territories in the Caribbean reached a high point in the 1790s. The French Revolution of 1789 added a civil war to the equation. Revolt reigned in the islands, in St. Lucia, Grenada, Dominica, among the maroons - former slaves who had taken to the Blue Mountains of Jamaica’s central range -, and most violent of all, in Haiti.
    There was heavy fighting in the Eastern Caribbean. British troops took Martinique in 1794. A month or two later, they landed in Guadeloupe. There, the British came up against Victor Hugues, leader of the French Revolution in the Caribbean. He had sailed from Marseilles, France, the year before.
    His squadron attacked the British in 1795 in Basseterre and forced them out of Guadeloupe by the end of that year.
    Victor Hugues set to work to drive the British out of these islands and to convert people to the cause of the revolution of republican France. Agents were sent to St. Vincent. Troops were sent in after the agents, and before long the English were hard pressed to keep Kingstown, while the French, made up of black and coloured troops, and the Caribs held the rest of the island.

    In the 1960s at a time when the impact of development activities on Caribbean environments was beginning to be visible, intrusive and troublesome, a number of groups and individuals concerned with the conservation of the region's natural resources and cultural heritage, conceived the idea for the formation of a conservation group for the Caribbean region. With support from Laurence Rockefeller, who in the 1950's had purchased two-thirds of St. John (to the US Virgin Islands) and donated it for establishment of a National Park, a regional survey on conservation problems was carried out by Dr Carl Carlozzi of the University of Massachusetts. One of the first organizations to take concrete action to address on a regional basis the environmental problems brought by development, was the research wing of the then College of the Virgin Islands the Caribbean Research Institute. Established in October 1965, one of the CRI's first significant projects was the joint sponsorship of the Eastern Caribbean Conservation Conference on St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands along with the American Conservation Association, headed by Mr Rockefeller, and the Government of the U.S.V.I. The conference focused on the Carlozzi findings and was titled "Conservation in the Eastern Caribbean." It generated a sequence of activities throughout the region relating to conservation programmes and environmental activities. Particularly it recognized the need for international planning and cooperation in meeting the conservation requirements of the region and concluded its deliberations by recommending the establishment of a regional body to help meet these needs.
