The battle of Vertières of 1803
The Battle of Vertières is the last large battle of the Haitian Revolution (Haitian war of independence) was fought between Haitian rebels and French expeditionary forces on November 18, 1803 at Vertières
Today, it's a holiday for the Haitians. Since this day played a crucial point in our independence. It used to be called the Day of the Army as well since the army was dissolved it is just Battle of Vertières. Vertières is just a place in Haiti.
Haitians led by Jean-Jacques Dessalines attacked a strong French-held fort of Vertières, near Cape Français (to the north of Haiti) and won a decisive victory over French colonial army under General Comte de Rochambeau and forced him to capitulate the same night. Haitian Ninth Brigade under François Capois played a crucial role in the victory.
As a result, independent Republic of Haiti was proclaimed on January 1, 1804. November 18 has been widely celebrated since then as a Day of Army and Victory in Haiti.
So, you are invited to take part in this great historical celebration.
