The Refugees from Saint-Domingue in New Orleans

New Orleans is the USA’s most Caribbean town, in part because, in the wake of the Haitian Revolution, it welcomed some 15,000 refugees (White colonists, free people of color and enslaved people) from the French colony of Saint-Domingue between 1791 and 1810.

The Great Upheaval

In 1755, the Acadians were expropriated by the British. Descendants of the French who had inhabited “Acadia” discovered by Samuel de Champlain during the previous century, they were sent to other colonies in America, France and the Caribbean. The expression “Grand Dérangement” or “Great Upheaval” describes this historic event.
