  • The French poorly treated both the natives and the slaves alike.
  • Nah.
  • Can we get some better treatment?
  • This led to the rise of the Maroon people and the increased disdain for the French.
  • Yeah, totally!
  • These French dudes aren't cool my guys.
  • Revolution!
  • The Maroons and escaped slaves demanded independence and the abolition of slavery. Of course, the French said no.
  • Can we get some equality?
  • No.
  • I guess we're just gonna have to fight for it then.
  • Alright, bet! Bring it on!
  • 1804-Independence was achieved
  • Yay! We did it!
  • That ACTUALLY worked!
  • So, the first independent country, as well the first black-led country, was born.
