Nord Department

Trip Planner Caribbean  /  Haiti  /  Nord Department
Nord is one of the ten departments of Haiti. It has an area of 2,114.91 km² and a population of 1,067,177 . Its capital is Cap-Haïtien.ArrondissementsThe department is divided into seven arrondissements: Acul-du-Nord Arrondissement Borgne Arrondissement Cap-Haïtien Arrondissement Grand-Rivière-du-Nord Arrondissement Limbé Arrondissement Plaisance Arrondissement Saint-Raphaël ArrondissementHistoryIn 1789 the Nord Department on the northern shore was the most fertile area with the largest sugar plantations. It was an area of vast economic importance. Here most of the slaves lived in relative isolation, separated from the rest of the colony by a high mountain range known as the Massif. This area was a stronghold of the wealthy planters who wanted greater autonomy for the colony, especially economically, so they could do as they pleased.Although the slaves were not expected to participate in a rebellion, suddenly on August 22, 1791, a great slave uprising plunged the country into civil war. Thousands of slaves in the fertile Nord Department region rose up to take vengeance on their masters and to fight for their liberty. Within the next ten days slaves had taken control of the entire northern province in an unprecedented slave revolt that left the whites controlling only a few isolated fortified camps. Within the next two months as the violence escalated, the rebelling slaves killed 2,000 whites and burned or destroyed 280 sugar plantations. Within a year the island was in revolutionary chaos. Slaves burned the plantations where they had been forced to work, and killed masters, overseers and other whites. This was the beginning of the Haitian Revolution.
