11 . See Hall ( 1992 , 124 38 ); Esteban Deive ( 1989 , 76 , 80 ); Gautier ( 1985 , 23 31 ); Romero Jaramillo ( 1997 , 171 ). Chapter 4 1 . See also Aguirre ( 1993 , 256 ). 2 . La Rosa Corzo ( 2003 , 21 , 73 ) makes the astounding statement that Maroon settle- ments in Cuba carried out only infrequent depredations against the plantations. However, he later demonstrates that this was not the case, especially in the first half of the nineteenth century when such depredations were common (ibid., 98 , 117 67 ). 3 . Since 125 of them were either deserters from the French or born to French deserters, although led by Santiago, a Maroon from the Spanish side of the border, it was agreed that the whole group should settle on the French side (Moreau de Saint- Méry 1979 , 140 ). 4 . According to the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary ( 1978 , 1190 ), a league varies in different countries but is usually estimated at about 3 miles. La Rosa Corzo ( 2003 , 262 ) states that the Spanish league is 2 . 63 miles. 5 . Borrego Plá ( 1973 , 26 ); Mathieu ( 1982 , 89 ); Arrázola ( 1967 , 56 , 57 ); Navarrete ( 2003 , 64 69 ). 6 . Information on the Suriname Maroons is taken largely from the following works: Beet ( 1984 ); De Groot ( 1975 ); and Hoogbergen ( 1985 , 1990 ). 7 . See Campbell ( 1990 , 27 ) for the main clauses of these Articles. Campbell (ibid., 26 ) refers to them as “the first formal declaration of war against any Maroon group in Jamaica”, and argues that the conflict that immediately preceded and succeeded the drafting of the articles should be viewed as the First Maroon War, rather than the wars of the 1730 s that are usually assigned that title. 8 . Dallas ( 1803 , 1 : 27 ). 9 . Patterson ( 1979 , 266 , 268 , 285 ); Campbell ( 1990 , 40 , 41 , 69 , 84 85 ). 10 . Reis ( 1993 , 43 44 ) mentions the break-up of a quilombo along the Prata River in Brazil after being devastated by a military expedition. There, an originally substantial group of at least three hundred people lost many of its members through deaths and capture in the assault, and the rest decided to form small bands of four or five people to attack Whites and their property. The Maroon group led by Balla in Dominica suffered a similar fate after a lethal attack on it (Atwood 1971 , 249 50 ). 11 . Porter ( 1932 , 323 passim); Blassingame ( 1979 , 211 ); Krogman ( 1934 , 421 23 ); Mulroy ( 1993 , 2 , 7 14 ). 12 .

The Mexicans referred to the Seminole Maroons as Mascogos (Mulroy 1993 , 58 ). Many of the Seminole Indians eventually returned to the United States (ibid., 87 89 ). 17 . Esteban Deive ( 1989 , 47 ), a modern writer, estimates the population at that time at around 12 , 000 . 18 . A later, far more conservative figure put it at no more than two hundred (Debien 1979 , 109 ).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
