Rights and responsibilities of citizens and non citizens before are after the war
The Haitian revolution completely altered social structure and the rights and responsibilities of the Haitian people. Before the revolution, there were three types of people, whites, free coloreds called mulattoes and slaves. The free blacks did not have much say in any of the decisions made, while all of the wealthy french, white men did. The slaves were treated brutally and forced to work everyday of their lives. They did not have any rights, while all others did, which changed after the revolution. The outcome of the Haitian revolution was that slaves became free black citizens with rights. They still did not have as much say as they wanted in decision making, and social inequality was still present. While the slaves were not sold or purchased, they still worked in the fields for economic reasons. Even though it was the first successful revolt, and gave freedom to the slaves, the responsibilities of now free blacks remained.
