|A map of Haiti, territories are cities and connected by major roads.
The native Taino - who inhabited the island of Hispaniola when it was discovered by Christopher COLUMBUS in 1492 - were virtually annihilated by Spanish settlers within 25 years. In the early 17th century, the French established a presence on Hispaniola. In 1697, Spain ceded to the French the western third of the island, which later became Haiti. The French colony, based on forestry and sugar-related industries, became one of the wealthiest in the Caribbean but only through the heavy importation of African slaves and considerable environmental degradation. In the late 18th century, Haiti's nearly half million slaves revolted under Toussaint L'OUVERTURE. After a prolonged struggle, Haiti became the first post-colonial black-led nation in the world, declaring its independence in 1804. Currently the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, Haiti has experienced political instability for most of its history.

Visually appealing map, small and fun. Not sure I like the cul-de-sacs (Bella-Anse, Marigot, Petite Trou de Nippes, Fort-Liberte) but overall a nice quick game in a beautiful setting.

Nice little map, with some neat twists. I like the splitting of the Sud Est bonus.

Fun little map. I agree with the other poster about the dead-ends. It seems like they could easily be connected to the nearby territories. Other than that, I would like to see a distribution mode or two as they help ensure a fair start on smaller maps. That being said, it's not as necessary here as it is with many other maps because of the inherent balance of this map.

I have to say, this map actually looks pretty nice. Good work!
