Hello, my name is Toussaint L'Ouverture. I was born in 1743, in Bréda, near Cap-Français, Saint-Domingue. I am now in Haiti and this is how the Haitian Revolution went down from MY perspective
I was born to former educated slaves; Gaou Guinou and Pauline. I somewhat understood French, but I wrote and spoke it poorly. I later became a livestock handler and got married with my beautiful wife Suzanne Simone Baptiste Louverture and had three amazing children.
The maroons then revolted against their white masters and I joined the revolt in 1791. Later I lead a general rebellion against slavery, where I proved to be a capable general (not to brag or anything).
In 1801, I created a constitution that granted citizenship and equality to all residents, where I declared myself governor (not to brag again). After this, plantations were divided up and lands were distributed among former slaves and free blacks.
Kids, did you hear that?!??!! Were going to have a new home! Thank you god!
Let me out Napoleon! I didn't do anything wrong!
However, the French betrayed me, after all the things I did for them! Napoleon took advantage of me not being successful no more and captured and arrested me!
I have Haiti now!!
Then, while Napoleon was too busy keeping an eye on me, Jean Jacques Dessalines came along and declared Haitian independence permanently. Haiti then became the first country in Latin America to win its independence.
Bruh, I didn't even notice because I was trying to keep an eye on Toussaint!!
