The French Revolution in San Domingo (Haiti)

The French Revolution in San Domingo: The Shocking True Story of the Murderous, Bloody, and Anti-White Reign of Terror which Created the State of Haiti. By T. Lothrop Stoddard. The shocking true story of the murderous, bloody, and anti-white reign of terror in the French colony of San Domingo—now called Haiti—which raged from 1789 to 1805.

During this time, 450,000 Negro slaves, 39,000 whites and 27,500 mixed-race persons slugged it out in a bloodthirsty conflict which ended with the complete extermination of every white person on the Caribbean island—and created the state of Haiti.

This book is unique in that it is completely based on original source material, translated for the very first time, from the official records of the colony kept in France’s national archive.

In this way, a step-by-step narrative of the entire drama unfolds before the reader’s eyes, revealing in shocking detail the full extent of the causes, the violence, the attempted retribution, and finally the extermination of all white people on the island state.

The lessons contained in this book—on the ills of slavery, the incompatibility of the races, and the dangers of liberal ideology—are more valid today than ever before.
