A FreeHaiti November 18 Vertieres teach-in post:
The Battle of Vertières was the defining battle of the Haitian revolution. On November 18, 1803, General Kapwa Lamò under the direction of Haiti’s founding father, General Janjak Desalin, beat Europe’s most experienced soldiers, sent by European conqueror General Napolean Bonapart, to re-enslave the Haiti fighters. Èzili Dantò outlines the important points.
