  10. Factors Leading to Revolution: • Social Injustice: colonial class structure- Creoles owned most land and wealth. Oligarchy- ruling elite. Mestizos, mulattoes, Indians, Africans have few rights. • Caudillos- local military strongmen- had own armies and gained control of governments- repressive, ignored existing constitutions. • Power of the Church: Catholic Church was a stabilizing influence, promoted education, in colonial times owned a lot of land. • Cash Crop Economies: colonies sent sugar, cotton, coffee to Europe – dependency on 1 crop=unstable economy. • Economic Imperialism: foreign investment helped develop mining and farming- developed ports and railroads, but only upper class and foreign investors profited; borrowed money at high rates from other nations and could not pay it back • Geographic Barriers: Andes Mountains, vast areas- hinder attempts at creating a unified Latin America. • Failure to Industrialize: lack of education and innovation • Peonage system: made workers practical slaves

  13. Impact of Toussaint L’Ouverture • Played a key role in what was the first successful attempt by a slave population in the Americas to throw off the yoke of Western colonialism. • Defeated armies of 3 imperial powers: Spain, France, and Great Britain • The success of the Haitian Revolution had enduring effects on shaking the institution of slavery throughout the New World. • Haiti became an independent republic in the Western Hemisphere.
