The West Indies, a region located to the southeast of the United States, consists of thousands of islands in the Caribbean Sea. The West Indies rapidly became a major trading partner to the American colonies and in the nineteenth century, cities in the Pioneer Valley shipped products such as fish and distilled liquors to the West Indies in exchange for spices, sugar, and other goods. The Connecticut River was a major artery linking the two locations.
