While the Haitian Revolution had been the only successful slave revolt in history, what were the social, political, and economic outcomes of it?. World History

       Socially, the lowest order of society—slaves—became equal, free, and independent citizens.

       Politically, they had thrown off French colonial rule, becoming the second independent republic in the Americas and the first non-European state to emerge from Western colonialism.

Economically, the country's plantation system had been largely destroyed. As whites fled or were killed, both private and state lands were redistributed among former slaves and free blacks, and Haiti became a nation of small-scale farmers producing mostly for their own needs, with a much smaller export sector.
