Comments
A separately published engraving, hand colored, showing Toussaint astride a horse, in full unform and wielding a sword. One of a number of images of the dominant figure of the celebrated slave revolt in St. Domingue; there are no known eye-witness portraits of him. See also other images of Toussaint on this website.
