An Historical Account of the Black Empire of Hayti
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
Published in 1805, Marcus Rainsford’s book was the first complete account in English of the Haitian Revolution. As a captain of the Third West India Regiment, Rainsford had arrived in British-occupied St Domingo on Hispaniola in 1797, and experienced at first hand the insurrection and the proclamation of Haiti as a nation. His sympathetic account of the revolutionaries is presented here, with introduction and notes by Paul Youngquist and Grégory Pierrot.
