Ashley Botkin — Week 7 Recap

In week 7 I was able to find many more interesting images from the “Monograph of Haiti,” a document of intelligence complied by U.S. Marines during their time in Haiti, published in 1932. Some of my favorite images are aerial photographs of cities in Haiti, and there are many of Port-au-Prince.

I have started reading Raphael Dalleo’s “American Imperialism’s Undead: The Occupation of Haiti and the Rise of Caribbean Anticolonialism,” but the book focuses more on literature during the period of American imperialism than what was specifically happening in Haiti, but the introduction was useful.
