List Price: $20.00 (Hardcover - Biography / Haiti / Revolutionary Leader - 2009)

Description: Toussaint, born a slave in the French colony of St. Domingue, led the first successful slave uprising in the Americas in 1793, defeating first the French and then the British and American opportunists who hoped to take advantage of the new country. The Haitian revolution is put in context with those in America and France, and its significance is made clear as Rockwell connects Napoleons defeat in Haiti with his willingness to sell French Louisiana to the United States.
