The largest fortress of its kind in the New World, the Citadelle was built by Henri Christophe, the Emperor of Haiti, following the overthrow of the French in 1806 by the only successful slave uprising in recorded history. This is the story of the painstaking historic preservation at this monument to Haiti's national pride.
