Absolutely great resource that spans from French colonization all the way to the freedom of the Haitian people. It tells of the Maroons and their quest for freedom prior to the revolution, fleeing to the mountains secretively.Once again, this website goes deeper into toussaint and his leadership regarding the revolution. He was a slave himself, and held liberty dear to the heart. Also, the article touches on the french people and their actual fear of the natives because of their strength in numbers. Simarlarly to the American revolution, the Haitians used guerilla warfare to assist in their efforts in the rebellion.

This resource gives a great background picture on the Haitian revolution. It gives alot of insight into the conflict between the free blacks and the colonized whites. It also discusses how the free blacks turned to britain for help with the conflicts. conflict began because the white colonists rejected the law passed to give the free blacks freedom. This caused not only the free blacks to rebel but also the enslaved blacks.
