Letter to Charles Humbert Marie Vincent signed by Toussaint Louverture

About the Project

Toussaint Louverture campaigned tirelessly on behalf of slaves during the Haitian Revolution, and his actions helped push France to abolish slavery in all its colonies in 1794. He wrote this letter in response to a speech in French parliament calling for slavery's restoration on Saint-Domingue. He warned the French that he would fight for Haitian independence if France ever revoked abolition. Help us transcribe this important letter written by a revolutionary.
