Casal and its history

Reports of the gratitude issued to Polish defectors of the Napoleonic army include the gift of citizenship to those who wished to remain in Haiti after the revolution, but they were also gifted parcels of land, given by Dessalines as well as other officers in the army. There were also reports that the Poles were the only 'whites' spared during the Koupe tet Boule kay by Dessalines and Bookman, while all others were killed.
