Cap-Haitian during government of Lysius Salomon

Cap-Haitian during government of Lysius Salomon

Here is a view of the second Haitian city Cap-Haitian in 1881 during government of Lysius Salomon.

Louis Lysius Félicité Salomon Jeune and his family were forced to flee the country to live in exile in Neyba during the rule of Charles Riviere-Hérard.

Upon his return Salomon, with the support of the masses, was named the nation's President, a role he would have until only months before his death in 1888. During this time, he was faced with many oppositions, mostly because of his radical means of turning the economic tide in the country, and also because of his determination to pay off the costly debt owed to France. He revolutionized the armed forces in the country, brought about a widespread modernization, opened the National Bank and established links between Haiti and its Caribbean neighbors, Cuba and Jamaica. The president would also rewrite the nation's constitution, making it possible for him to be re-elected in 1886 for a term of 7 years.

FADH - Haiti Military in Cap-Haitian

Do you know who are in this picture? I just want some old time Haitians from Cap-Haitien to give me the answer.

These people were at one time the the city of Cap-Haitian itself. Many of the new generation probably do not have a clue. I remember those days like yesterday. Although many of them install a notion of fair among the populations. However some how, in some twisted way, they helped to maintain order

Mwin pa konnin kombyen nan nou ki kapab di mwin non moun sa yo ki nan foto sa. Min, anpil vyero nan vill Cap-Haitien konnin moun sa yo tres byen. A on moman, moun sa yo te sel kok chante nan vill sa.

Si ou kapab sonje non kek nan yo, di nou?

How long can Haitian Government subsidize its Poor?

The Haitian government's National Social Assistance Program (NSAP) is working to give a helping hand to five million-plus Haitians by 2016.

Segments of the population in need include the handicapped, elderly, destitute mothers, students, and farmers. Remedies include cash transfers, farming kits, emergency coupons, solidarity baskets, and hot meals prepared in mobile kitchens.

The U.S. has funded NSAP for $76 million, and the Haitian government has already used $15 million of it. It needs more funding to keep the program going.
