""Here is the gallant story of Toussaint L'Ouverture, who fought valiantly for Haiti's freedom; Dessalines, who trusted no white man and who waged war with fire and destruction. Here is Murad Rais, Scottish admiral to the Bashaw of Tripoli; and William Eaton, whose heroic march across the North African deserts was brought to nothing through the treachery of a fellow countryman.
