1791 – 1804

The first successful slave revolution is named as such because in 1804 when Haiti finalized a 13 year war it was the first time that a Republic was forged out of the victory. According to the Oxford Dictionary a Republic is a state in which supreme power is held by the people and their elected representatives, and which has an elected or nominated president rather than a monarch. The revolution furthers its greatness by declaring a universal open invitation to any black man, woman or child to migrate to the mountainous region and start anew. Land, oppurtunity and freedom was offered for the first time on a Republic level. Haiti was not the first free in just the Western hemisphere as most people want to change our narrative. Haiti is the first free black republic period.
