The US Annexation of Santo Domingo is an oft-brought up subject on this board. Buenaventura Baez was desperate to have somebody or anybody annex his country - the US, the French, the British, the Spanish, whoever. Given that the Spanish, who still had slavery, did take up Baez on the offer (and were promptly driven out afterwards), Baez clearly had no qualms with annexing his country to a nation with slavery. The Confederates meanwhile were some expansionist and grubby little jerks. Somebody coming along and offering them more territory for slavery? How could they say no. So, what if the Confederate States had annexed the Dominican Republic? The CSA now has to fight a Guerrilla War in a country in which the population is armed to the teeth and has very recent experience driving out occupiers. Would the US pick a fight over this? Would the UK? Would the costs and failure of a Dominican War cause massive political tumult in a CSA that likely is still getting its footing as an independent country? Could the CSA itself see domestic uprisings over this?
