Lamartiniere Louis Daure

Brigade Commander Lamartiniere. His wife Jeanne Marie, was a brown Jeanne dArc !" Lamartiniere looked in vain for Dessalines to come forth from the fortress with relief forces but only an old man, pretending to be an idiot, had worked his way through the French forces, to advise Lamartiniere that the fort was to be evacuated that night. After dark, on March 24, 1802 , the besieged rebels opened by bayonet a corridor through more than 10,000 French troops. Most escaped to fight another day. Even the French commanders classified this withdrawal as "a remarkable feat of arms." For his role in the defense of Crete-a-Pierrot, Louis Daure Lamartiniere is recognized as another of Haitis heroes.
