Re: [HAITI] French Naval Officer

in 1799 Haiti was st. domingue. At that time St. Domingue was under Toussaint Louverture's government.

If the french returned it was when Bonaparte decided to restituer slavery in St. Domingue. It was in 1802, 1803 Toussaint Louverture was bretrayed and brought to France.

From 1802-1803 the war of independance. The war ended on November 18, 1803. January 1, 1804 St. Domingue was named Haiti because it was the name the Arawaks gave to the island before the "discovery" . We were independent from France. The french army was vanquished. I don't believe you would find any french naval officer in 1805 haiti. You would FIND HAITIAN NAVAL OFFICER. We had an army until the 1915 american occupation. aN AFRO - AMERICAN AMBASSADOR TO HAITI ADVISED PRESIDENT WOODROW WILSON TO SEND TROUPS IN HAITI. IT WAS HUMILIATING.

IN 1994 THE AFRICAN AMERICAN CONGRESS ADVISED THE PRESIDENT OF THE US TO SEND TROUPS IN HAITI. TWICE IN OUR HISTORY IN THE 20TH CENTURY WE WERE HUMILIATED BY aAFRICAN-AMERICANS IN POWER.
