"Why would Napoleon Bonaparte sell the Louisiana Territory to the recently formed United States of America? It all comes back to the island nation of Haiti, which Napoleon had planned to use as a base for trade with North America. While Napoleon climbed the ranks of the French army and government, enslaved people were organizing in Haiti under the leadership of Fran©ʹois Mackandal, Dutty Boukman, Jean-Jacques Dessalines, and Touissant L'Ouverture, who in 1791 led the largest uprising of enslaved people in history--the Haitian Revolution." --Amazon.
