1791, A new constitution for Saint-Domingue
Instruction pour les colonies françoises, contenant un project de constitution; Présenté à l’Assem-blée nationale, au nom des comités de
constitution, des colonies, de la marine, d’agriculture et de com-merce; Colonie de Saint-Domingue: n.a., 74p, Paris, 1791. (This document memoralizes an attempt
by the revolutionary National Assembly to fashion a new governing constitution for Saint-Domingue that would help to keep the colony under French
control, while providing for a modicum of local self-government. The project became moot within a year under the pressures of increased radicalization in
French politics, the end of the monarchy, and the full flowering of the slave revolution in the colony.)
