  • According to Bissainthe, a second edition was also printed in 1814
  • According to the author in his preface, this account of the revolution in Haiti was written, from exile in the United States, in the Winter of 1793-1794

Everyone swore an oath to fight for freedom until death. Although the term "voodoo" is not used by name, Michèle Oriel, in the Histoire et dictionnaire de la révolution et de l'indépendance d'Haiti, p. 185, claims that Dalmas is the first to describe such a ceremony in print. For a more full description of the ceremony, see Robert Debs and Nancy Gordon Heinl's Written in Blood: the story of the Haitian people 1492-1995, p. 39-40
