Christopher Columbus discovered a beautiful tropical island in the Caribbean Sea in 1492. He gives the name of this island Hispaniola. In the seventeenth century the island became a French colony, Saint-Domingue. Toussaint Louverture (1743-1803) has encouraged enslaved Africans to be independent of France. They got their freedom in 1804. It has changed the name of Saint-Domingue the republic of Haiti.
