Re: Toussaint L'Ouverture

For more information on this, see my article "Les Noirs en France sous Napoléon : l"Enquête de 1807," in Yves Bénot et Mrcel Dorigny, Rétablissement de l'esclavage dans les colonies françaises : Aux origines de Haïti (Paris, 2003).

As for Toussaint Louverture, there has been a great deal of research carried on and I very much doubt the boast that new material has been found in archives in France and elsewhere. Sound like a gross exaggeration. And although Louverture was certainly mistreated in prison (and I`ve read the original documents), he was most certainly not "starved to death" as claimed!
