This study examines the highlights of annexationism in the 1850s when Cuban Annexationists found strong support from some American groups after the Texas annexation and the Mexican-American war. It explores the significance of annexationism in three areas: as representing one step beyond the early Creole reformism; as introducing into the political climate the acceptability of armed struggle; and as adding to the sense of a separate Cuban community and identity, not least with the debates it engendered, especially that between the essentially European cultural nationalism of Saco, and Cisneros Betancourt's logic of economic integration with the US and hence protection by its growing power.
