Toussaint L'Ouverture was the leader for this revolution. France, Britain, and Spain sent their armies to Haiti to stop the Haitians. But they would set up fires and brutally murder the French colonists. They won but later on Napoleon sent his army to take Haiti back. Toussaint L'Ouverture again led the Haitians to fight.
After the revolution, slavery ended and Haiti became an independent country. Toussaint L'Ouverture passed away after being arrested by Napoleon's army.
