This copy of the Haitian Declaration of Independence, published by the government, is located in the collection of the Public Record Office, in a register of documents from Jamaica. (See here for full details).
This account, by an English visitor who witnessed many of the key events of the war of independence, provides a sympathetic description of Toussaint Louverture and details about the struggle against the French. The engravings from the work have been widely reproduced.
Louverture’s 1801 Constitution made him Governor-for-life and created an autonomous regime for Saint-Domingue, which while it remained a colony of France was placed largely under his control. It was written by a commission staffed largely by white planters, along with the homme de couleur Julien Raimond.
This law, signed by Toussaint Louverture on July 13, 1801, establishes the division of territory in the colony of Saint-Domingue.
