Haiti's Declaration of Independence

...has just been found after years of being lost.  If it sounds a little harsh to modern ears, remember that the Haitians were throwing off centuries of slavery with this declaration.  If anyone ever tells you that slaves are better off being slaves, point them to this declaration made by those who were slaves and declared death preferable.
