Sanite Belair- Hero of the Haitian Revolts

Born c. 1781 as a freewoman. She served as a sergeant in the army of Toussaint Louverture during the Haitian Revolution in 18th century. She was married to a great general Charles Belair. Eventually captured by General Charles Leclerc, she was sentenced to death by decapitation, after witnessing her husband die by firing squad. Reportedly, she walked to her death with bravery and defiance.
