Masters and Their Slaves during the Insurrection

(p.174) Chapter 9 Masters and Their Slaves during the Insurrection
Facing Racial Revolution
University of Chicago Press

This chapter presents an excerpt from white plantation owner Pierre Joseph Fondeviolle's account of the relationship between masters and slaves during the early stages of the Haitian revolution. This narrative describes the shock that slaveowners experienced when they saw their former slaves armed and being treated with respect by the white authorities. Fondeviolle suggested that the loyalty of some slaves shows that their treatment was not as harsh as critics insisted. He also argued for the necessity of restoring a reformed version of slavery in Saint-Domingue.
