E The Early History of Haiti: “Haïti is the first republic in the world to have been led by a person of African descent, Jean-Jaques Dessalines. This is not however the only historically significant aspect of this country. Notably, it is Dessalines’ victory over Rochambeau, in Vertieres, that forced Napoleon to abandon his bid for the control of Louisiana and eventually, the rest of the ‘New World’. Therefore, were it not for Dessalines and his troops of freed slaves of African origin, the United States of America would most likely not be what they are today.”
