Saint Domingue, which is now Haiti, was one of the major islands that participated in the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. This island was considered one of the richest colonies that were under the French colonies. Haiti was a great place to put our memorial because it was an island that received many slaves. Our memorial statue is dedicated to the enslaved people and leaders that took place in the Haitian Rebellion. This rebellion was one of the most important aspects of Haitian History because it emerged from a slave rebellion and it was the slaves' way of gaining their freedom.
