Chapter Twelve: Repercussions: Britain and France
Section One - Under Development
Section Two - Under Development
Section Three - Under Development
Chapter Summary: Chapter Twelve charts the repercussions of the Haitian Revolution in Britain and France. The external reactions in these countries were somewhat more muted, but the loss of France's richest colony cost Napoléon any hope of creating a colony in the New World. While the French tended not to talk about Saint-Domingue out of embarrassment, they got over it long enough to sue the island country for war reparations, a crippling move that is still being discussed today. Finally, we'll look at the worldwide implications of Haitian Independence as it heralded the end of the Imperial Age.
