The Haitian Massacre was an organized cleansing that was carried out against the remaining white population of French Creoles by the order of Jean-Jacques Dessalines.
The massacre, which took place in the entire territory of Haiti, was carried out from early February 1804 until April 22, 1804, and resulted in the deaths of between 3,000 and 5,000 people of all ages and genders.
The argument for killing the women was that whites would not truly be eradicated if the white women were spared to give birth to new Frenchmen.
He referred to the massacre as an act of national authority.
Dessalines regarded the elimination of the white Haitians an act of political necessity, as they were regarded as a threat to the peace for the black and minority population.
