7473: 7381: Re: 7374: Cap Haitien Walk (fwd)

From: madison bell <mbell@goucher.edu>

I suggest a visit to Fort Liberte.   It's easy enough to get from the 
region of the Citadelle and ruins of the forts survive.  Bone up by reading 
the story of Rochambeau's landing there in 1802 (first blood shed during 
the Napoleonic invasion and probaboly the event that triggered the burning 
of Cap 2 days later)... for a contemporary flavor, read Stan Goff's HIDEOUS 
DREAM, set in Fort Liberte during the intervasion.
