The Fort de Joux or Château de Joux is a castle that was trasformed into a fort. Until this day, Fort de Joux is best known for serving as the site of imprisonment for Toussaint Louverture, who died there on 7 April 1803.

Has any previous Haitian president ever been to Fort de Joux?

Priscilla C. writes on Facebook: "Mwen kwe se premier President nou ki fe sa. Sim pa tronpe-m. Se touchant... ke Bondie ba li force ansam ak Toussaint..."

Translation: I believe this is the first Haitian President who ever did that. if I am not mistaken. It is touching ... May God give him strength together with Toussaint..."

What do you think about that?
