This chapter presents an excerpt from Peter S. Chazotte's account of the massacres in Saint-Domingue in 1804. It explains that Chazotte is one of the rare French white who survived the series of massacres ordered by Jean-Jacques Dessalines after the declaration of Haitian independence on January 1, 1804. His narrative reflects the bitterness of the whites against the blacks and the French army who failed to protect them.
