Discover the story of the Haitian Revolution—the largest uprising of enslaved people in history—in Blades of Freedom, a Hazardous Tale from author-illustrator Nathan Hale in the New York Times bestselling graphic novel series.

Why would Napoleon Bonaparte sell the Louisiana Territory to the recently formed United States of America? It all comes back to the island nation of Haiti, which Napoleon had planned to use as a base for trade with North America. While Napoleon climbed the ranks of the French army and government, enslaved people were organizing in Haiti under the leadership of François Mackandal, Dutty Boukman, Jean-Jacques Dessalines, and Touissant L’Ouverture, who in 1791 led the largest uprising of enslaved people in history—the Haitian Revolution.
