Read «Commander» — Bolshakov Valeriy Petrovich — Page 38

Flying up the wide stairs to the flat roof-asotea, Sukhov rushed to the jagged parapet.

— Fire!

A discordant volley of muskets came as a not pleasant surprise to the new arrivals.

The cavalrymen were hot guys, therefore, not very smart. That is why they immediately began to shoot back, wasting gunpowder in vain, because only almenas suffered from their firing.

And now, with empty muskets, they burst into the patio. nine0003

And they were waiting there.

The cramped yard instantly overflowed with neighing horses, trampling fragrant bushes, and screaming people.

The corsairs, who were hiding in the gallery on the first floor, fired from their knees up at the cavalry, so they did not hit any of their own, although they opened fire from both sides. And the musketeers were added on top.

The hecatomb turned out to be noble — a good dozen caballeros fell off their saddles, two shot horses kicked between their bodies, deciding to stand on their hind legs, and blood flowed …

There was nowhere for the life-giving sticky redness to soak in, and the terrible puddles widened and widened, closing and thickening.

Probably ten of the «assaulters of the attackers» managed to escape, although the shots rang out outside the walls of the hacienda.

Sukhov descended from the roof, grimaced in disgust, and went out onto the terrace.

A queue lined up at the local forge — the slaves were hastily unchained.

They unchained because Captain Ash ordered it, and the Indians themselves spurred the haste — many of them had captured muskets and pistols in their hands. nine0003

Therefore, the blacksmith and the hammerer worked with great dedication, working hard to achieve long life.

There was no one on the plantations, except for the corpses of the overseers, already naked — they were secretly economic people.

Oleg turned to Don Antonio, who stared wide-open eyes, and waved his hand in front of a look that expressed torment. Dead.

— François! Sukhov shouted. — Gerard Toussaint! Where are you? Stop messing around! This is the most… The Moors have done their job, the Moors can leave. nine0003

Hispaniola, Santo Domingo de Guzmán


His carriage was rolling behind, but the fury raging in the governor’s chest did not allow him to sit still.

His fingers clenched and unclenched, wanting to tear, shred, choke.

O Holy Mother of God! Yes, how much is possible?

Is there a limit to human patience? nine0003

Father Ignacio calls for meekness and humility in worldly affairs, but how can you be humble when such arbitrariness is happening?!

Puffing and puffing, Don Gabriel overcame the steps of the stairs and tumbled into the dark and cool corridor of the audience.

The guards hurriedly opened the carved doors for him, and the governor rushed in.

Barely catching his breath, looking around his own office with a wild look, he bellowed:

«Captains de Fuemayor and de Hielva!» To me! Alive! nine0003

The clatter of feet outside the door announced the execution of the order.

Angrily throwing off the camisole that was choking him and unbuttoning the collar of his shirt, the governor flopped into an armchair.

— Will you allow me? came a low voice.

De Chavez y Ossorio raised his swollen eyes.

Don Alberto de Coron, an old friend of the Governor, stood at the door.

As a man, Don Alberto was secretive, even mysterious.

Don Gabriel heard vague rumors about the intrigues that de Coron weaved far in the north, in the possessions of the Dutch and English, but this interested him little. nine0003

This was even beneficial to the Spanish crown, since Don Alberto did all his tricks to the enemies of the king, damned heretics. So they need it.

«Greetings, Don Alberto,» groaned de Chavez y Ossorio, exhausted from heat and anger. — You’re back quickly! Or have you left yet?

De Coron bowed gracefully.

“I am there and back, señor,” he said smiling, “gathered a team on his Black Grand and arrived at Hispaniola in order to pay my respects. I won’t be here for long — I’ll make some supplies and head to San Juan de Puerto Rico. There I will wait for General de Toledo, and from there, as part of the Armada España, I will move south, to the Windward Islands, to Brazil . .. However, I see that your grace is not very interested in my plans. What happened, señor? nine0003

Don Gabriel sighed.

— Commander de Montigny, whose ship you dubbed the «Black Grandee», declared a real war on us! Not so long ago, he attacked the Canyon del Oro mine, freed the slaves there, killed all the guards and took a lot of gold with him! And now his detachment has exterminated all the people of Don Antonio Ossorio on his own hacienda! People are worried, people are afraid, I am besieged from all sides, demanding to destroy the robbers and restore order. And I will guide him, a thousand devils!

Just then, two people stepped into the office, surprisingly similar to each other — Captain Ruy Fernandez de Fue Major and Captain Francisco Turrillo de Ielva.

Both had puffy, exhausted faces, and their noses took on an ugly shape — the first one had the respiratory organ turned to one side, the second one was completely flattened, because of which de Ielva constantly sniffled.

“They have come…” the governor said ominously.

Both captains stretched out into the front.

— What are you doing, rascals? Why is this robber, this dirty pirate still alive and at large?! Why is he not in chains or on the gallows?! I’m asking you! nine0003

“Your Excellency,” de Ielva snored resentfully, “we didn’t get an order…

— Oh, you didn’t get it?! the governor yelled. — Get it now! You! Don Gabriel’s fat finger pointed at de Fuemayor. — Take a hundred … no, one hundred and fifty lanceros! You! The finger moved, poking at de Hielva. “You take another hundred soldiers!”

And both of you today, now, are going in search of this enemy of the church and the king, Commander de Montigny!

You can bring him in a cage like a wild animal, you can bring one of his heads, I don’t care! But this lawlessness, this unbridled robbery must be stopped! Did you understand?! nine0003

The captains stared loyally at the governor, turned around and hurried away.

Don Alberto de Coron slipped out after him. He smiled.

So Captain Ash is still alive and continues to do dirty tricks to the king of Spain… Wonderful. Just perfect.

So they will meet again. Necessarily!

De Montigny will not wander for a long time through the dales in the mountains of Hispaniola.

He is a corsair, he needs a ship! And Captain Ash will get it. nine0003

That’s when it’s worth organizing their rendezvous — Armada España against a wretched pirate flute or what will they steal there? Pinnace? Well, let there be pinas. Ah, what a meeting!

And he will personally give the order to hang this lousy commander on the yardarm of the Black Grandee.

Chapter 13, in which Oleg falls into a trap

Sukhov was in no hurry to the sea, although he was drawn to the coast.

It was clear that the Spaniards would definitely respond to the riots in Maguan and Cibao. nine0003

The governor will simply be forced to send troops to pacify the «robbers and enemies of the crown. » Where should he go?

So Oleg was waiting for Spain to strike back.

In the meantime, he was spinning in the foothills, visiting small villages. In principle, they had enough supplies of provisions taken at the Ossorio hacienda, but it was impossible to let the soup cool in a pot — let the Spanish settlers shudder with fear when they hear the clatter of hooves!

Let them remember that he is nearby and can appear at any moment. nine0003

This time Sukhov decided to pay a visit to the inhabitants of a small village with the magnificent name of El Pueblo de San Pedro del Fuente de San Geronimo.

There was only one street in the village, leading to the source, near which a chapel was erected, and built up with two rows of stone houses, not rich, but solid.

It was immediately obvious that hard-working people live here, and Captain Ash forbade robbing such people.

There is no need to anger the common people, let those who are not rich consider him almost Robin Hood. nine0003

Sidra, Puerto Rico

Sidra ( Spanish pronunciation: [ˈSia]) is a Puerto Rican municipality located in the central part of the island, north of Cayey; south of Comerío and Aguas Buenas; East Aibonito and Barranquitas; and west of Caguas. Sidra is spread over 12 barrios and Sidra Pueblo (business district and administrative center of the city). It is part of the San Juan Caguas-Guaynabo Metropolitan Statistical Area.

  • History

    The area of ​​present-day Sidra belonged to the Taíno region of Cubui, which occupied part of the center of Puerto Rico, the tobarrios on the east coast. [3] The Caguax led the region.

    There are not many records that show that the region was inhabited after the Spanish colonization. However, it is believed that around 1795 a Catalan named Frujols built the Hermitage or shrine around which a small village settled. The settlement became a Cayey ward until 1807, when the residents gave Victoriano de Rivera the right to ask the governor for permission to establish an independent city. In 1809a landowner known as Bibiana Vasquez donated the land needed for the foundation, and Governor Salvador Meléndez approved the petition. Victoriano de Rivera was appointed leader of the city, but due to illness, he was quickly replaced by Wenceslao Vázquez. [4]

    At the time of its foundation, Cidra had 26 houses and 11 huts. It is believed that its name comes from the citron fruit, which was widely cultivated in the area. [5] [6] Within a few years after its foundation, a church and a town hall were built. By 1822 there were already two public schools in the city. Two years later, the road connecting the city with Caguas was opened. In 1868, the population of Sidra was over 5,000 inhabitants, including European immigrants and slaves. nine0003

    Puerto Rico ceded to Spain after the Spanish-American War under the terms of the 1898 Treaty of Paris and became a US territory. In 1899, the first census of Puerto Rico was taken in the United States, finding that the population of Sidra was 7,552. [7]

    In 1902, the Legislative Assembly of Puerto Rico approved a law to unite certain municipalities. As a result, Sidra again became part of the city of Cayey. However, in 1905 a new law repealed the previous one and Sidra became an independent municipality again. nine0237 [8]

    Hurricane Maria

    Much of Sidra was hit by landslides

    Hurricane Maria On September 20, 2017, Sidra experienced numerous landslides with significant rainfall. In some areas of Sidra, there were more than 25 landslides per kilometer. [9] [10] Machete-wielding citizens worked to clear roads from the Wilds after the storm, especially in Rabanal, Arena and Ceiba, high altitude areas of Sidra. 1,500 houses were left without a roof, and many of them will never receive funds for repairs. One local (analogue) radio antenna survived the disaster, allowing communication within the city. Before the hurricane, there were plans to eliminate the radio tower, but when 9With 2.7% of Puerto Rico’s towers destroyed by the hurricane, plans to eliminate the analog radio tower were cancelled. Puerto Rico Highway 172, the main highway leading to Sidra from the Metropolitan area, was to remain closed for repairs for five months. Power was restored to Sidra only six months after the storm. [11]

    Like all municipalities in Puerto Rico, Sidra is subdivided into Barrios. The municipal buildings, the central square and the large catholic church are located in a small barrio called

    Barrios (which are similar to small administrative units) [20] are in turn subdivided into smaller local settlements/units called sectarians (which means sector in English). Types cultists may differ from the usual sector to urbanization to Reparto to barriada to residential , among others. [21]

      Flag and coat of arms

      Flag of Sidra

      The flag of Sidra has one brown vertical stripe on the left side, approximately one third of the length of the flag. It also has two equally sized horizontal stripes to the right of the brown one. The above stripe is green and the bottom stripe is yellow or gold. The golden color symbolizes the richness of fruits and their hydrography, as well as the spiritual richness of the region. The green color symbolizes the green landscape that can be seen in Sidra all year round, which is also the reason why the city is called the «City of Eternal Spring». The brown color symbolizes the Virgin, the patron saint of the city, as well as Paloma Sabanera that is widely seen in the area. nine0237 [8] [43]

      In some versions of the flag, the coat of arms is also depicted on the left side, above the intersection of the three stripes. The coat of arms was approved in the 1970s by the municipal assembly. It has a red stripe that crosses the shield diagonally from left to right. Above the red stripe lies golden citrus fruits, which is considered one of the reasons for the name of the city, and a cornucopia of fruit, which alludes to Cidra’s role as one of the main fruit producers on the island. The top field is white or silver and contains two symbols: a black spade representing the Virgin, and a black bishop’s hat in reference to San Juan Nepomuceno, bishop and martyr.
