Pierre Richard Augustin's forefathers shed their blood alongside American colonial troops against the British in the Siege of Savannah, Georgia of September 15th to October 20th 1779. The largest "all Black regiment " on either side to take part in the American Revolution war. The Regiment was also the first French Black regiment in the history of the French Army. Remarkably, neither these facts seem to be well known.
Although initially successful, the allies were driven back by the counterattack of the British Regular reserves commanded by Col John Maitland. The Haitians soldiers were assigned the rearguard position of American and French forces and were credited with saving the American and French Allied forces from destruction.
The picture and wording above are from a monument that was constructed in Franklin Square of Savanah, Georgia, USA 230 years later, on October 11, 2009 to honor the Haitian soldiers who gave their lives in the American war for Independence: one of the most significant foreign contributions to the American Revolutionary War that ultimately led to the creation of the United States of America.
Hispaniola was the site of the first European colonies founded by Christopher Columbus on his voyages in 1492 and 1493. Hispaniola is now made up of two countries, Haiti being the first free black republic in the western hemisphere and the Dominican Republic.
