Poland save Haiti


A true but little known story from the Haitian Revolution. Late in the war, things were looking grim for sketchy old France, with much of their army dying of Yellow Fever. But France had one trump card—a powerful Polish Legion, who fought for France in hopes that Napoleon would help to restore Polish independence. But the Poles were told that it was a prison revolt in Haiti, not a war for freedom… When they got there, members of the Polish legion saw clearly what was happening—they realized this was Haiti fighting for freedom from enslavement, and it reminded them of their own struggles for freedom against Russia, Prussia, and Austria. Many of the Poles switched sides, and helped the Haitians in their fight! When the war was over, and Haiti freed (sort of; more on that in a future video) Haiti gave the Poles full citizenship in the Haitian constitution.
