He dubbed the land Hispaniola, or Little Spain, and it became the first outpost of the Spanish empire and a gateway to the rest of the Caribbean."
"On January 1, 1804, Haiti gained its independence from France, and became the second oldest independent nation in the Western Hemisphere, after the U.S."
