Read the two passages from sugar changed the world. england had begun talking about ending slavery, but then it saw the chaos in france and sent an army to try to defeat the haitians. now napoleon's france followed in the footsteps of the english. napoleon's 35,000-man army was led by his brother-in-law and soon scored an amazing success: they captured toussaint in 1802 and brought him to france, where he died in prison in 1803. but the former slaves fought on. in two years of fighting, nearly 50,000 french soldiers died. and on january 1, 1804, the victorious republic of haiti was born. fighting for freedom, the former slaves defeated the armies of first england, then france: europe's two most powerful nations. haiti was born free; human rights won over property rights. in 1807 a bill to ban all english involvement in slave trading passed the house of commons, then the house of lords. at precisely noon on march 25, king george iii signed the law. we should mark that date, honor it, to this day. for while no slaves were freed by the bill, it marked a great change in the world. more slaves from africa had been shipped by the british than by any other nation. that part of the grim history of sugar and slavery was over. indeed, that very same year congress passed a law forbidding americans from being involved in importing slaves. in the great contest over whether a human, any human, could ever be property; the tide was turning. how do the authors develop the claim in the two passages? both passages the reader understand how the end of involuntary servitude in haiti led to the end of involuntary servitude in britain. both passages illustrate how property rights were more important to the british than to americans. both passages support the claim that human rights became more important than property rights in the early 1800s. both passages support the claim that the end of the slave trade eventually led to the end of the sugar industry.
