Front Cover
AuthorHouse, 2012 - History - 374 pages
Nimblett tells the little known story about the decision for the Caribbean island of Tobago to form a unitary colony with the neighbouring island of Trinidad in 1889. He chronicles the path from its discovery by Columbus in 1498 to its status as a British colony in 1814. Tracing for the first time the growth of its relations with Trinidad, the book reproduces the principal records of the decisions in the legislatures of Tobago, of Trinidad and of the British parliament that created the union.
