Like Connections to the Philippine-American War, this assessment gauges students' knowledge of the past. Students with a strong understanding of the past will explain that the sugar trade gave rise to a brutal and deeply entrenched system of slavery in Haiti and that the Constitution of 1801 arose from a revolutionary movement opposed to slavery. A strong response to the second question could explain that the enlightenment principles of liberty and freedom espoused in the Declaration of Rights of Man and of the Citizen influenced Louverture's declaration of self-rule in Haiti. They might also relate that the content of the Declaration was reflected in the words of the Haitian Constitution of 1801.
