T-they rejected me .....
YOU JUST GOT REJECTED!!!!! (Sorry Tim)
BTW: Happened through the treaty of Ryswick and then the french Gained control of 1/3 of Hispaniola and decided to rename it Saint Domingue.
Saint Domingue Supplied half of Europe with sugar, coffee, and cotton.
1791 - 1803 (L'Ouverture rises and Slaves are freed... MORE YAY! )
Saint Domingue mulatto delegation asked the french assembly for French rights for mulattos but was refused, Sorry Tim.... Later Vincent Ogé led a revolt that wasn't successful, He was later executed. A year later French Assembly gave full political rights to mulattos and free blacks (YAY!)
What they got in return (After years of war.)
After this, Some white planters disagreed. With this disagreement lead to violence being spread.
Toussaint L'Ouverture rose as the leader of the Haitian revolution. Just before, Boukman and Cecile Fatiman launched the Boukman Rebellion which sparked the Haitian Revolution. Battle continued for years, L'Ouverture had conquered all of Hispaniola and abolished slavery there. Finally, on July 8th, Louverture signed the Haitian constitution. But it just wasn't that simple.
Well, the revolution was finally over afterDessalines signed the Haitian Constitution of 1805 (after more fighting... of course) The king and queen of France finally recognized Haiti and gave them a total 150 million francs in gold. This helped Haiti pay off its debt. The results of the revolution were actually not that great, yes, Slavery was abolished in Haiti (It being the FIRST people to abolish slavery) But there were also increases in Poverty, Struggle for power and failed democracies to name a few. The Revolution paved the way for good changes and bad changes.
