    Anguilla Introduction - 2004
    http://www.immigration-usa.com/wfb2004/anguilla/anguilla_introduction.html
    SOURCE: 2004 CIA WORLD FACTBOOK

      Background:
      Colonized by English settlers from Saint Kitts in 1650, Anguilla was administered by Great Britain until the early 19th century, when the island - against the wishes of the inhabitants - was incorporated into a single British dependency, along with Saint Kitts and Nevis. Several attempts at separation failed. In 1971, two years after a revolt, Anguilla was finally allowed to secede; this arrangement was formally recognized in 1980, with Anguilla becoming a separate British dependency.
