        Haitian Revolution (–), series of conflicts between Haitian slaves, colonists, the armies of the British and French colonizers, and a number of other parties. Through the struggle, the Haitian people ultimately won independence from France and thereby became the first country to be founded by former slaves. At the forefront of the rebellion was General Toussaint Louverture, an ex-slave whose genius was admired by allies and enemies alike. The Haitian Revolution (–) was a period of conflict in the French colony of Saint-Domingue, which culminated in the elimination of slavery there and the founding of the Haitian republic.8/10(46).

James into the representative politics and historical implications of the Haitian Author: Fionnghuala Sweeney.

        "Exploring the ambiguous and contested place of Toussaint Louverture and the Haitian Revolution in American political and cultural life, [Matthew Clavin] contends that Haiti's influence extended well into the nineteenth century and was a significant factor in shaping American understandings of their Civil War/5(16). The Revolution Will Be Forgotten is a proposed, collaboratively-edited popular history of the Haitian Revolution, shaped by the information gathered at The Louverture Project, and molded by its readers. When completed, the narrative will cover the events leading up to the revolution, the rise of Toussaint Louverture as the leader of his country.
