In the 1700s, Haiti was the most valuable colony in the West Indies because it produced 40% of Europe's sugar, 60% of its coffee and it was home to more slaves than any places, but it wasn't peaceful because it was slavery.
"French's slaves got their freedom so we can get our freedom too because we are same as them."
"But we can't fight with them, we need someone to be smart and help us with that."
"we choose Toussaint Louverture to be our leader because he knows how to read and he is smart so he can be a good commander."
"we will fight to be independence and we will get what we want because we are equal to other people."
In the war between Haitians and French, Haitians won because they had diseases that the French soldiers could get. French had better weapons but Haitians fight a guerilla war so they won and they got independence which was the first black country that get their freeom.
