The Saint-Domingue expedition was a French military expedition sent by Napoleon Bonaparte, then First Consul, under his brother-in-law Charles Victor Emmanuel Leclerc in an attempt to regain French control of the Caribbean colony of Saint-Domingue on the island of Hispaniola, and curtail the measures of independence taken by the former slave Toussaint Louverture. It departed in December 1801 and, after initial success, ended in a French defeat at the battle of Vertières and the departure of French troops in December 1803. The defeat ended forever Napoleon's dreams of a French empire in the West.

  • La spedizione di Saint-Domingue fu una spedizione militare francese inviata da Napoleone Bonaparte, allora primo console di Francia, al comando di suo cognato il generale Charles Leclerc, per tentare di riprendere il controllo francese sulla colonia caraibica di Saint-Domingue sull'isola di Hispaniola, e far terminare le tendenze indipendentiste degli schiavi locali capeggiati dall'ex schiavo Toussaint Louverture. Sbarcò nel dicembre del 1801 e, dopo il successo iniziale, terminò in una disfatta totale per i francesi nella battaglia di Vertières. Dopo tale atto i francesi partirono nel dicembre del 1803 per tornare in patria, abbandonando per sempre la colonia.

  • L'expédition de Saint-Domingue débutant en décembre 1801 et s'achevant en novembre 1803, est décidée par le Premier Consul Bonaparte sous l'influence du lobby colonial, mené par le Deuxième Consul Jean-Jacques-Régis de Cambacérès, ex-avocat des propriétaires d'esclaves, et deux conseillers influents pour les affaires coloniales, François Barbé-Marbois et le planteur Malouet. Pendant deux ans, ils ont hésité, imaginant d'abord utiliser Toussaint Louverture, esclave noir affranchi devenu général de la République française, qui a conquis la partie espagnole de l'île en 1795 puis obtenu l'armistice du 30 mars 1798 avec les Anglais, à qui les propriétaires d'esclaves avaient offert la partie française de colonie dès 1794.
