Taking retrospect into the Haitian Revolution, one must acknowledge its unprecedented nature and outcomes. Specifically, the significance of the Haitian Revolution was justified by the fact that it was the only revolution started and won by slaves.
Therefore, the revolution represented solely the goals and needs of the vulnerable population, which made it unique. However, as the revolution continued, the movement eventually expanded to include other populations and goals. In turn, the Spanish war in Mexico resulted at the end of the colonial reign of Spain in it and created premises for racial equality. For the U.S. people, the specified change implied reinforcing the anti-slavery, abolitionist ideas.
Specifically, the ideas presented in “Los Sentimientos” prohibited any encroachments upon the rights of other nations or people and their dignity, including torture and military invasion. Therefore, the Haitian revolution leading to Mexican independence implied a shift in the U.S. government’s perspective on slavery, as well as international relations.
