When we decided on the phrase “Age of Revolution” for the overall theme of Waterloo 200 going forward we included the period from the American Revolution ie 1775. However on viewing the material this now brings into play I was startled to see the Haitian Revolution of 1791 to 1804 is to be included. I had no idea there had been such an event. Perhaps it’s still going on!
The Haitian Revolution was the only slave uprising that led to the founding of a state free from slavery and ruled by non-whites and former captives. To read more I recommend you go to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haitian_Revolution
