Saint Croix  is an island in the Caribbean Sea, and a county and constituent district of the United States Virgin Islands (USVI), an unincorporated territory of the United States. St. Croix is the largest of the islands in the territory, being 28 by 7 miles. However, the territory's capital, Charlotte Amalie, is located on Saint Thomas. The island was inhabited by various indigenous groups during prehistory. Christopher Columbus arrived on the island on November 14, 1493 and was attacked by the Kalinago who lived at Salt River. The island traded between various powers, including Spain, Netherlands, Knights of Malta, and Great Britain before it became a possession of France from 1650 until 1733. On June 13, 1733, France sold the island group to the Danish West India Company.  Source
