  • I need to do something for all of my brothers and sisters! they deserve a better life! 
  • After slavery had been ended, Toussaint became the leader of the slave rebellion which was fighting the French  and invading Spanish and Britain.
  • Lets go get them!
  • Toussaint after your 7 victories in 7 days we are naming you a de facto governor of our colony!
  • Maximilian Robespierre was sent to the guillotine then Napoleon was ruling France. He reinstated slavery in Haiti which plunged Haiti into war.
  • By 1803 Napoleon and Toussaint agreed to terms of peace. Haiti then became independent but that meant Toussaint had to retire from public life. After a few months the French invited Toussaint to a meeting with guaranteed safety.
  • Peace
  • When he arrived at this 'meeting' he was arrested and put on a ship and placed in a prison dungeon in the mountains and murdered by means of cold, starvation and neglect. He may have died but the fight for freedom continued.
