This means that an important page in history has been missing.From their first day maroon colonies faced enormous problems.They had to quickly find a safe location, plan a defense, feed and clothe their people, and plan the life of a stable community.Maroons considered each day of survival a small miracle, and were thankful for each new dawn as free men and women.Some colonies were begun a single African or Indian, and otheres were the result of several or many slaves fleeing together.

I do make mistakes, so please correct me and help me make this a better site.
