Portrait of Toussaint Louverture
Toussaint memorial at Fort de Joux
On April 7, 1803 Toussaint Louverture died in French captivity at Fort de Joux. A day later Toussaint's post-mortem examination is carried out. Nine months later Jean-Jacques Dessalines finishes Toussaint Louverture's work and delivers the final blow against the French troops in the victorious Haitian Revolution.
