Suzanne Simon-Baptiste Louverture: Her deportation and her life in France

By Gabriel Osson, writer

After Toussaint Louverture's capture by ruse at Cap Français and deportation with his family to France, Toussaint was imprisoned at Fort de Joux, in the Jura, under the orders of Napoleon Bonaparte, on July 14, 1802, where he died in April 1803. His wife, Suzanne Simon-Baptiste Louverture, and their children, Placide, Isaac and Saint-Jean, were deported to Bayonne and then to Agen.
