Thanks for the history lesson! You have quite an informative blog here!

Former Marine huh? HUUUHAA!

HEY YALL!

thanks for the update. I am a direct ancestor of the Merikens in Trinidad my family are still in one the original settlements called "SixCompany", which is also named after the regiment. The history books dont acknowledge what happened to our side during the war of 1812 but thanks for helping to the spread the message.

@Natalie:

Thanks for coming by, I intend to get down that way soon and do some site seeing and vacationing!

I love the story because it shows that many Africans took advantage of opporitunity, unlike what is popularly taught.

I have been trying to get my hads on the book"THE MERIKENS: FREE BLACK AMERICAN SETTLERS IN TRINIDAD 1815-16", with no success. If you know of anyplace or person selling one please post it.

Hello

This Is Peter Taylor the Minister of Legal Affairs and Member of Parliament for the Constituency of Princes Town South/Tableland, the constituency where the Companies of black Marines landed in Trinidad. I am a member of the cabinet of the Government of Trinidad and Tobago and I and other colleagues are committed to embracing this fascinating piece of our history. There is one book entitled "The Saga of The Companies" written by Boysie Huggins. Now deceased, his expose of the history of the Merikens in Trinidad is very informative and interesting. Kindly email me at [email protected] for further discussion

Thank YOui
