The general, Toussaint L’ouverture, was an essential piece in the success of the Haitian revolution. From 1791-1804, the revolution entangled a series of conflicts to lead Haiti becoming independent from slavery and from other controlling European powers such as France and Spain. Toussaint led the charge in creating armies of followers from slaves and fugitives from the French and Spain armies. He successfully  trained them in guerrilla warfare to take down the European forces that held them back for so long.

“I took up arms for the freedom of my color. It is our own - we will defend it or perish.” -Toussaint L’ouverture
