1791-1804. Haitian Revolution. Leelerc’s veterans storm Ravine-a- Couleuvre (Snake Gulley) in 1802. I think the Haitian revolution slaves wanted to become free and free blacks also wanted their rights.
I think the Haitian revolution slaveswanted to become free and free blacks also wanted their rights.
I read in the text the success of American Revolution encouraged Haitian to try to gain freedom from their European masters. ( Chpt. 24 , pg. 682 )Why did they start the revolution ?
I reasoned that the Haitians (enslaved & free blacks ) revolted against the French masters.
I read in Doc.1 “The white population defied an order from France to enfranchise free blacks, it triggered a violent revolt that involved changing alliances among free blacks and the large slave population.”Who were the people revolting against the government ?
I reasoned that the Haitians declared their independence and also created a constitution giving equal rights to all no matter what race or color.
