This poor blog has had to take a backseat to other more pressing issues lately. I apologize to those who have been checking in and seeing nothing more than a blank page. I’ll have a post or two to post shortly. I suppose you can still expect intermittent blogging for the time being, but the main focus for me is the wiki at any rate, so please head over there, read through, and add any knowledge or insight you may have. (I have had a run of wiki spam lately, so drop me an email if you see anything that doesn’t look right.)

Site update – March ’05

I apologize for the lack of posts lately. I’ve been distracted with I should be able to get back to a more regular posting schedule now.


In the process of moving this blog to the new server, I lost a draft I had been saving until the process was complete. Not a big deal in the scheme of things, but a minor frustration, and it means that I lost a chance to do a fresh post. Ah, well… We had our first instance of spam on the brand new site.

Progress for January 5th

Added a list of HIstorical Documents. I’d like this to eventually be a complete list, with links to as many online references as possible. Added a little to Dessalines’ bio, but it really needs work.

Welcome to the new home for The Louverture Project blog

Welcome, one and all! After months of work, The Louverture Project is almost ready to open. An important step was to get this blog up and running. As the project progresses, we’ll post updates and items of interest to the community involved in building this unique history project. For example, today we finished formatting and […]

Site update – more to come…

I haven’t been keeping up with the site much lately, as the pace of my research has slowed down a bit. Next month, though, I’ll be at the Haitian history conference in Providence, Rhode Island, and I intend to blog from the conference, assuming there’s power in easy reach and my typing doesn’t disturb anyone. […]

A couple of blog notes for Feb 21, ’04

I’m tracking the current situation in Haiti as closely as possible, and I’m all to tempted to post updates here. However, Haiti Pundit has been doing a great job posting all the latest updates and news, so readers who want the skinny on the current stuff should head there. I get royally miffed from time […]

Another Quote from James

The Black Jacobins, by C.L.R. James, p. 21 “An uninstructed mass, feeling its way to revolution, usually begins by terrorism, and Mackandal aimed at delivering his people by means of poison.”
