This study examines the highlights of annexationism in the 1850s when Cuban Annexationists found strong support from some American groups after the Texas annexation and the Mexican American war. Cuban nexationists and American expansionists both feared social disorder, racial strife, and political and economical instability. The significance of annexation lies in three areas: it represented one step beyond early Creole reformism; it introduced the idea of the acceptability of armed struggle; and finally, it added to a sense of separate Cuban community and identity.
