Summary note:
Scholarly study on "Los Gavilleros", a Dominican resistance guerilla movement against the U.S. Occupation of the Dominican Republic starting in 1916. The "gavilleros" enjoyed considerable support from the population since most Dominicans greatly resented the loss of their sovereignty. Having knowledge of the local terrain, they fought against the United States occupation from 1917 to 1921. The fighting in the countryside ended in a stalemate, and the guerrillas eventually agreed to a conditional surrender.
