The Danes reluctently purchased St. Croix from France in 1733. This was to make way for a new colony after the successful revolt of the enslaved on St. John a year earlier. While it was a peaceful transfer from France to Denmark, the enslaved that survived the insurrection were forced to build the infrastructure for the Danish colony in Christiansted.
