Abstract:The thesis also studies these filibusters in the context of contemporaneous relations between Spain and the United States. In the early years of the nineteenth century, these two nations engaged in a number of acrimonious disputes over Florida and Texas. These disputes frequently led Spanish officials to assume that the United States government was involved with the filibusters. Issues between the two governments also had relevance to the filibustering expeditions in other ways. Thus in surrendering American claims to Texas, for example, the Adams-Onis treaty of 1819 directly inspired James Long to conduct his invasion of Texas in the same year.
