Haiti lies in front of the great steps of the American empire like a doormat at the entrance of a majestic castle. Haiti has been there for America when it needed it the most. In 1804, Haiti became the second country in the western hemisphere to proclaim its independence after the U.S. But Haitians services and sacrifices to American freedom began as early as 1779 in the U.S. Revolutionary War, to the early 1800s. But the Haitians never got recognition. Instead they watched their country being thrown on the back burner while the U.S. helped other countries advance. How long can America deny the sacrifice of Haitians? In the late 1790s, Haitis black general, Toussaint Louverture, saved the U.S. from a dreaded war with the more-powerful Napoleon Army. Not only was the Franco-American War avoided, but the defeat suffered by Bonapartes French troops during the Haitian Revolution forever changed global politics and Americas future. Derailed from the pursuit of his worldly dreams, a deflated Bonaparte hurried to sell the Louisiana Territories once he realized his men could not win against the Haitians. Toussaint Louvertures selfless acts saved American freedom and made the U.S. prosperous. His acts also led to his demise, thereby sending Haitis future adrift.
