Jacob Lawrence, The Life of Toussaint L'Ouverture No. 29.
L'Ouverture made a triumphant march into San Domingo on the 2nd of January, 1801, at the head of 10,000
men, and hoisted the flag of the French Republic. Toussaint did not wish to break with the French, the
largest group of Haitian inhabitants. The Blacks themselves spoke patois French. (1938)
