THIS CHURCH IS
Limonade's Church Where King
Christophe Had A Stroke
The answer to the question under the picture appearing in o
September 8th issue Do you know this Chui-ch? is fodnd below"
The church is located at Limonade, a village in I:e Noi-rh of Hai
with a population of 1500 inhabitants, about 17 ki'omct.is from Ca
Two events of uncontestable historic value are connected with this
village. Christopher Columbus chose it.to build Fort Nativity in Ja
unary 1493, making it America's first outpost.
Three hundred" twenty seven years later King Henry Christophe
was attending mass at its church when he fell, smitten with apoplexy.
An inscription mounted by a cross in the choir stand there is testi-
mony of the eyent.
The story of Limonade and Fort Nativity is covered in Gerard de
Catalogue's latest publication -A Guide to Cap-Haitien and The Cita-
del of King Christophe.. This book which is richly illustrated was
published under the sponsorship of the Department of Commerce
Mr. De Catalogne mentions that the discovery of 25 cadavers on
the Montholent plantation in limonade in 1784 removed all doubt
that these were the remaining Spaniards of the Christopher Colum-
bus expedition. Copper dated for the year 1472 later found in this
same spot by Moreiu de Saint Mery further contributed !o the facts
of the Spanish origin of the discovery.
Limonade and its church will gain still further glory, Mr. De Ca-
talogne said it is to be hoped when a suitable monument is erected
to record for posterity the events that took place there and which
are so worth of remembrance.
