The Haitian slaves were lead by a self educated slave to start the revolt. France, Britain, and Spain all placed their armies on the island in order to try and stop the Haitians. The Haitians won and slavery was then abolished. Later in 1802, Napoleon sent his army to try and take the island back. The leader of the slaves convinced the Haitians to fight again. A year later the French army caught yellow fever causing them all to surrender.
Give up now!
After the revolution ended, the island became the independent country Slavery had officially ended and Haiti then became a republic.
