In the 18th century

In the 18th century, revolution had established its presence in France and Haiti resulting in years of rebellion. These revolutions found nourishment in Enlightenment ideals. This and other similarities proved how the idea of freedom can cause people to act upon their rights of equality and liberty. Although the revolutions had many similarities, they differed in many aspects as well. In France, the peasant and middle classes fought to overthrow their monarch and restructure a government that was already in place, whereas in Haiti, the slaves sought to extinguish the French colonial government.
In year 1971, both the French Revolution and the Haitian Revolution coexisted.
