Haiti History

I read some facts about Haiti rediscovered by Christopher Columbus of Europe and I have found out that for years they have had many problems with their government. But despite the problems they were the first country ta have African slaves fight for their freedom and ever since then they have been free. For quite a while in history there were many groups who have tried to control Haiti. A very bitter, cruel group had controlled Haiti for quite some time and many of the citizens moved to the United States to evade the government. The Ciboney Indians that originated from South America, migrated to Haiti in around 2000 B.C. and when the French had found the land they had decided to colonize in the land and transform it into a monstrous sugar plantation. Many of the natives from the land had been turned into slaves to work in the plantation. Then when they decided to fight back they were announced free by the government.
