Looking to catch images of Dominica and its beauty? Then keep watching the Thumbs to your right! Dominica lies almost in the centre of the arc of islands known as the Lesser Antilles. This arc extends from the Trinidad-Grenada Passage in the south up to the Anegada Passage between the Virgin islands and Anguilla. These islands of the Lesser Antilles are of volcanic origin.
Following the French attack under La Grange and the suppressions of the Maroons in 1814, Dominica was entering a long period of peace . In 1815 Napoleon was finally overthrown and the threat of French attack on Dominica was over for good. For almost a hundred years the inhabitants had lived in constant fear of invasion and yet, now they were faced with problems no less important than war. The most insistence was slavery.
