Haiti
LotNo. Symbol CatNo. Lot Description
61   imageHaiti, 1798 (Jan. 10), Headed autographed letter from General Toussaint L'Ouverture, letter (185 x 234 mm) with printed heading "Au Cap le 21 Nivos l'an sixième de la République française, une et indivisible. Toussaint Louverture, Général en chef de l'Armée de Saint-Domingue", written order concerning the transfer of a soldier in the artillery, signed "Toussaint L'ouverture", Fine state of conservation, rare surviving document from the most important personage of the Haitian Revolution against the French,

François-Dominique Toussaint L'Ouverture was born of African slave parents in Haiti and became a free man in 1777. In 1791, he joined the rebellion against the French and was made Commander-in-Chief of the Haitian insurgents. Although Saint-Domingue had become the most prosperous French slave colony during the late 18th century, it then was transformed into the first free colonial society to reject race as a social factor, with Toussaint L'Ouverture's push for independence in 1800. He was taken prisoner by the French in 1802, sent to France, and died there the following year. He is universally known as the "Father of Haiti".
