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.
