Comments
Color foldout, top caption, "Incendie du Cap" [Burning of Cape Francais]; bottom, "Revolte générale des Negres. Massacre des Blancs" [General revolt of the Blacks. Massacre of the Whites]. Shows, from a decidedly pro-colonial perspective, whites fleeing Cap Francais in Saint Domingue, as the slave rebellion of 1793 intensified; many of these whites fled to the United States and elsewhere in the Caribbean.
