Haitian Slave Revolution

Of nearly 500,000 slaves in St. Domingue, 400,000 were field slaves and their lives were miserable. They were made to work from dawn to dusk and were under-fed. They were not given proper medical attention and their owners found it easier to buy new slaves to replace the old and the sick and never bothered about treating and retaining the old ones.
