Independence Day in the Dominican Republic

Independence Day in the Dominican Republic is almost here! It is celebrated this Friday, on February 27. This is an important holiday in the Dominican Republic and among the Dominican diaspora in the USA because it marks the 171st anniversary of the independence of the country! Before gaining its independence, the Dominican Republic has been colonized by the Spanish and the French, and has been occupied by Haitian troops. Finally, in 1838 Juan Pablo Duarte, Francisco del Rosario Sánchez and Matías Ramón Mella created a secret society known as “La Trinitaria,” through which they fought against the Haitian oppression and ultimately became the Founding Fathers of the Dominican Republic on February 27, 1844.
