Start Of Dominican Slavery
Dominicans were fighting for their independence at the time from Spain. In 1821 Dominicans gained their independence from Spain. Slaves from Africa were brought to Hispaniola and Dominicans worked for hours without getting paid enough doing labor work. They were abused and mistreated "women and men press against the barbed wire gate" (Alami) Slavery in Dominican Republic wasn’t as severe as other countries, the land of the Dominicans was discovered Christopher Columbus. At the time he was looking for gold but couldn’t find any. Instead he filed ships with enslaved Taino which were brought by force to work on the land. “During the next four decades, slavery contributes to the deaths of 7 million Taíno. By 1535, the Taíno culture on Hispaniola is gone.” This evidence shows how they took over their land and the large affect it had on their culture

"In 1800 the Haitian revolutionary Louverture used his forces against the Spanish, and in January 1801 he unified all of Hispaniola as one island. In January 1802 the French invaded Hispaniola, looking to quell the violence and return the colony to its status as an economic goldmine. Louverture, however, was taken prisoner by the French in 1802. Regardless of this, on January 1, 1804 Haiti, under the leadership of Jean-Jacques Dessalines, declared its independence, and in the following year invaded the Spanish side of Hispaniola. In 1821 the once vibrant and economic powerhouse known as the Colony of Santo Domingo began its fight for what is known as the Ephemeral Independence, but this was not to last. In 1822 the newly independent Haitians were fearful that the French would use the eastern portion of the island to mount an attack on Haiti and re-establish slavery. Under the leadership of Jean Pierre Boyer, the Haitians invaded the eastern side of Hispaniola, outlawed slavery, and once again unified the island until the fight for independence in 1844."
