Toussaint Breda was born a slave in modern day Haiti, which was then Saint Dominique.
But my father was born free in Africa!
You're special. I shall make you my house servant and let you read and write!
He had a liberal master and was compelled by ideas of the Enlightenment.
The free blacks and the mulattoes of Saint Dominique shall have some freedom!
The French Revolution extended some freedom to Saint Dominique. This freedom was temporary, though. It was retracted in 1791.
You can't take our freedom! We're gonna revolt.
This led to the radical Jacobins ending slavery. Woohoo!
I'm a mean tyrant and I want slavery in all my territories!
Napoleon took power and brought back slavery. Boo!
I'm a great general. We're totally winning!
Toussaint successfully fought the French, as well as invading Spain and Britain.
