Historical Themes: Slave Rebellions in the Caribbean
 The Haitian revolution began in August of 1791 and,
unlike the other wars of independence of that period, it
was a slave uprising - in this case against their French
owners who had created some of the harshest and
cruelest slave conditions in the Americas.
