LIBERTY FOR ALL! FREEDOM FOR ALL! NO MORE SLAVERY!
August 22, 1791, Boukman leads a slave revolt in the north. Toussaint also begins slave revolts in Saint-Domingue in the name of liberty, freedom, and equality for all. The European "Revolutionary Wars" are soon followed after in 1792.
Alright man, good luck on your revolution!
Take the land!
Hey man, I just feel that this is not working for me *crosses fingers*
1791, Slaves start burning plantations and killing masters. This made Léger-Félicité Sonthonax end slavery in the colony in 1793. Toussaint joins forces with the Spanish army against the French in the same year.
Go get 70 warships and 25,000 men, I'm not going to have Saint-Domingue make a fool out of me!
1791-1799, Toussaint's soldiers fought against the French government, invaders, Royalists, and free-colored leaders. In 1801, the French government began to reconsider the possibility of ending slavery.
1794, Toussaint leaves the Spanish army and joins the French. He changes allegiance from the Spanish to the French. 1795-1801, Spain gives up Santo Domingo to the French.
1802, Napoleon reinstates slavery in the French colonies, which had been already abolished. He ends up sending 70 warships and 25,000 soldiers to Saint-Domingue.
On April 7, 1803, Toussaint died of pneumonia and starvation after being arrested and sent to Fort-de-Joux in the Jura Mountains of France. The Battle of Vertières marks the final victory for the revolutionary army over the Napoleon army. 1804, Haiti is finally independent from France.
