The Windward Islands
The Windward Islands are the southern half of the Lesser Antilles: Martinique, Dominica, St. Lucia, Grenada, the Grenadines and Barbados. Most of these islands were settled by the French but were acquired by Britain in the Seven Years’ War.
As we have seen, Barbados was the cultural hearth of the Lower South. The slave society that originated there was transplanted to the Leeward Islands, then to Jamaica, then to South Carolina, and later to the Windward Islands and British Guiana in South America.
Most of the settlers who colonized the Southern colonies and the British West Indies came from the south and west of England. Few people are aware that just as many English settlers went to the British West Indies as those who came to North America.
Because of tropical diseases, low birthrates, and the sugar monoculture of the islands (not to mention natural disasters and wars between rival European powers), White settlement failed in the eastern Caribbean.
What you see today in the eastern Caribbean is exactly what you see in Jamaica, Haiti, Dixie and many other countries: busted slave societies destroyed by crusading liberals in foreign metropoles and overwhelmed by the Black Undertow.
The Golden Circle concept was an attempt to form a federation of slave states to forestall exactly this scenario by throwing off the yoke of Washington, London, Paris, and Madrid.
