Haitian Revolution 1800
Murmurs of a free Saint-Domingue spread through the island. With news of the American and French Revolution, the slaves have their sights set on freedom. While obstacles lie in their path, quick action on their behalf could see their aspirations being reached. Saint-Domingue also has seen social unrest. The recent French revolution has inspired a sense of nationalism amongst the French colonists. The affranchis, the free and mulatto population in Saint-Domingue, have demanded to be recognized as equals to the white colonists and vie for control over the current slave population. A revolution is in our midst.
