Forced to flee their French Caribbean colony following a slave rebellion that gave birth to the Haitian Republic in January 1804, they spread throughout the Caribbean and along the North American Atlantic coast.

This book gives a good over view of the situation as to what happened in Saint Domingue, and also what happened to the various people groups that migrated to New Orleans. It also gives a good feel for how those from Saint Domingue , both "free people of color" and former slaves who also chose to leave.

St.-Domingue is better known outside of Louisiana research as the western end of Santo Domingo, the island now divided between Haiti, with its French roots, and the Dominican Republic, which is Spanish in origin. Dessens is a French academic, however, specializing in American Studies, and she has a different take on the influence in Louisiana of the white sugar planters and merchants who fled St.-Domingue after the successful slave revolution that began in 1791. They settled all over the lower Mississippi Valley, but especially in New Orleans, and they had a considerable effect on the perspective of French-speaking creoles in the region, reinforcing and strengthening existing French culture. Planter society in St.-Domingue was, not surprisingly, heavily interbred, so many of the refugees were related to each other, which encouraged them to cultivate a group consciousness, resist assimilation, and maintain a separate identity as far as possible -- especially against the very different American political and cultural presence that arrived in force after 1803. Most of the Old South may have been monolithic in its upper strata, but not New Orleans or the surrounding region. Dessens examines in considerable detail the intricate interweavings of white, free black, and enslaved back Haitians and suggests several new approaches to the study of communities and how they form, and especially to "exceptionalism" in Louisiana's social history. This is a thoroughly academic study (the footnotes take up twenty percent of the book), but also very readable, and it adds considerably to the relatively small body of research available to local historians and genealogists.
