RWBF:Chapter Fourteen Development Notes
- Haiti's history did not end, of course, in 1804, nor even did the revolution, in a sense. But the true sense of equality and the hope for a prosperous Saint-Domingue did seem to end with Louverture and the victory of Dessalines.
- Malick Ghachem - The Haitian revolution forced historians to talk differently about the American and French revolutions - like why didn't the American Revolution resolve the slave issue?
- Seppinwall - Haiti's revolution showed blacks that servitude was not inevitable.
