3. Who helped Senegal gain independence?

In 1817 France takes Senegal back from the English. The government tries to establish an agricultural colony that produces cotton and indigo but the project fails due to taxes and customs of the Moorish tribes settled on the river bank.

Louis Faidherbe is then sent as a Colony Governor. He manages to suppress these customs and rehabilitates several forts along the river (Dagana, Podor,…). But El Hadj Omar Tall is standing on his way. Caliph of the Tidjianes Brotherhood, he fights off the French colonial army, until his death in 1864. Afterwards Faidherbe imposes a French protectorate on the river region and tries to have a railway line built between Goree and Saint-Louis for the transportation of peanuts. He clashes with Lat Dior Diop who dies in 1886 during a battle against the Faidherbe troops. The English manage to keep Gambia and the Portuguese give the Casamance in exchange for lands in Guinea-Bissau.
