March 20, 1956
In 1952, Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia were all pushing for independence. However, since Algeria was considered part of France at that point (much the way that Hawaii is considered part of the United States today), the French wished to keep Algeria under French sovereignty to a much greater degree than either Morocco or Tunisia. Additionally, Tunisia had a powerful and emboldening leader in Habib Bourghiba who pressed strongly for independence and negotiated a gradual withdrawal of French forces, while maintaining good relations with France. This led the French to trust him with independence and be willing to concede it to him. As a result, in 1956, France gave both Morocco and Tunisia independence in order to focus on retaining Algeria.
Egypt, Morocco, and Tunisia
France colonized both the countries of Algeria and Tunisia. Algeria gained independence in 1962 while Tunisia became independent in 1956.
The Tunisian War of Independence occurred from1952 to 1956 between France and a guerrilla movement under Habib Bourguiba. Bourguiba became the first President of the new nation after negotiations with France that led to the independence.
