Haitian Revolution of 1791 – 1804

French Colonialists versus Haitian Revolutionaries


Committee dESCRIPTION

The Haitian Revolution of 1791 – 1804 (HR) was a successful anti-slavery and anti-colonial insurrection by self-liberated slaves against French colonial rule in Saint-Domingue, now the sovereign nation of Haiti. It began in 1791 and ended in 1804 with the former colony's independence. It was the only slave uprising that led to the founding of a state, which was both free from slavery, and ruled by non-whites and former captives. With the recent increase in Haitian Revolutionary Studies, it is now widely seen as a defining moment in the history of racism in the Atlantic World.

Notice: The following Haitian Revolution simulation begins on August 14, 1791.
