The language of San Lorenzo is a fictitious English-based creole language that is referred to as "the San Lorenzan dialect." The San Lorenzan national anthem is based on the tune of ''Home on the Range (Home on the Range (song))''. Its flag consists of a U.S. Marine Corps corporal's stripes on a blue field (presumably the flag was updated, since in the 1920s Marine Corps rank insignia did not include crossed rifles). Its currency is named ''corporals,'' at a rate of two corporals for every United States dollar (United States dollar); both the flag and the monetary unit are named after U.S. Marine Corporal Earl McCabe, who deserted his company while stationed at Port-au-Prince during the American occupation in 1922, and in transit to Miami, was shipwrecked on San Lorenzo. McCabe, along with accomplice Lionel Boyd Johnson from Tobago, would together throw out the island's governing sugar company, and after a period of anarchy (anarchy (word)), proclaimed a republic. *The UK to withdraw its forces from Egypt. *The ceding to the UK of Trinidad, Tobago and Ceylon. *France to withdraw its forces from the Papal States. France's own peace terms with Britain were completed in January 1783. Worried that another year of war would result in further British victories, Vergennes was keen to reach an agreement. France received Tobago, several trading posts in Africa, and the end of trading restrictions at Dunkirk. Vergennes claimed that France's limited gains justified his position that their participation had been disinterested. He was criticised for this by Marquis de Castries (Charles Eugène Gabriel de La Croix, marquis de Castries), who believed that most of the war's burdens had been on France, while most of the benefits went to her allies.

According to genealogist William Addams Reitwiesner, the Duchess of Cornwall's ancestry is predominantly French, English, Dutch, and Scottish. Through her French lineage, Camilla's maternal line great-great-grandmother was Sophia Mary MacNab of Hamilton, Ontario, who was herself the descendant of 17th century immigrants to Quebec, daughter of Sir Allan MacNab, and wife of William Coutts Keppel, Earl of Albemarle (William Keppel, 7th Earl of Albemarle). Their son, George, was husband to Alice Edmonstone (Alice Keppel), who was the royal mistress of King Edward VII (Edward VII of the United Kingdom), himself the great-great-grandfather of Prince Charles.

black power

workers went on strike, and there was talk of a general strike. In response to this, Williams proclaimed a State of Emergency on April 21 and arrested 15 Black Power leaders. In response to this, a portion of the Trinidad and Tobago Defence Force, led by Raffique Shah and Rex Lassalle mutinied and took hostages at the army barracks at Teteron. Through the action of the Trinidad and Tobago Coast Guard the mutiny was contained and the mutineers surrendered on April 25. France's initial military assistance to the American rebels was a disappointment with defeats at Rhode Island (Battle of Rhode Island) and Savannah (Siege of Savannah). In 1780 France sent Rochambeau (Jean-Baptiste Donatien de Vimeur, comte de Rochambeau) and de Grasse (François Joseph Paul de Grasse) to help the Americans, along with large land and naval forces. The French expeditionary force (Expédition Particulière) arrived in America in July 1780. The appearance of French fleets in the Caribbean was followed by the capture of a number of the sugar islands, including Tobago and Grenada.

species quot

on small fruit (but often remarkably large for the size of the bird ) including berries (Berry), and to a lesser degree, insects. Since they take fruit in flight as other species "hawk (hawking (birds))" for insects, they are believed to have evolved from insect-eating birds. Females have big territories from which they do not necessarily exclude other birds of their species, instead feeding somewhat socially. Males spend much of their time together at courtship

This is described as "Trinidad County of St. George , ... Arima Road, 3 miles above north of Simla (Asa Wright Nature Centre) Research Station ." The '''Blue-chinned Sapphire''' (''Chlorestes notatus'') is a hummingbird that breeds from Colombia south and east to the Guianas, Trinidad, Peru, and Brazil. There have been occasional records from Tobago. For Brazil, the species' range is along the main Amazon River Basin (Amazon Basin), as well as the coastal Atlantic Ocean, both in the northeast, as well as far south on the southeast coastal strip, (an entire coastal strip, north-east-south of about 3000 km). It is sometimes placed in the genus ''Chlorostilbon''. The '''Gray Kingbird''', also known as '''Pitirre''', ''Tyrannus dominicensis'', is a passerine bird. It breeds from the extreme southeast of the USA through Central America, from Cuba to Puerto Rico as well as eastward towards all across the Lesser West Indies, south to Venezuela, Trinidad, Tobago the Guiana (The Guianas) and Colombia. Northern populations are migratory (bird migration), wintering on the Caribbean coast of Central America and northern South America. The '''Streaked Flycatcher''', ''Myiodynastes maculatus'', is a passerine bird in the tyrant flycatcher family (family (biology)). It breeds from eastern Mexico, Trinidad and Tobago south to Bolivia and Argentina. The southern subspecies ''M. m. solitarius'' migrates (bird migration) to Venezuela and the Guianas from March to September during the austral winter. This bird is found in humid tropical forests from southern Mexico and the Yucatán Peninsula, to Trinidad and Tobago, south to Peru and Argentina. They are able to tolerate some degree of habitat fragmentation, breeding successfully near cities and in forest fragments as small as Commons:Tobago
