Drake's attack on Santo Domingo. English corsair Sir Francis Drake attacking Santo Domingo (in present-day Dominican Republic). Drake's forces captured the city and occupied it for over a month, looting and extorting a large ransom. This attack took place on 1 January 1586 during Drake's 1585-6 voyage to the West Indies, and was part of the Anglo-Spanish War. This map was published in 1589 by Italian cartographer Giovanni Battista Boazio. For a series of four illustrations of attacks carried out during this voyage, see images C023/8620, C026/8912, C026/8913, and C026/8914.
