Here is a photo of Napoleon Bonaparte French emperor who impacted the History of Haiti.

Napoleon Bonaparte became General Toussaint Louverture's main enemy after he came to power in 1799.

Napoleon Bonaparte tried to re-establish slavery in the Caribbean colony of Saint-Domingue, known to day as the Republic of Haiti.

He sent his brother in law General Leclerc to make it happen.

Napoleon Bonaparte had Toussaint Louverture captured by deceit and transferred to a dungeon in the French Alps where the Haitian revolutionary leader later died.
