On 12 March, the French forces attempted to gain control of the fort but failed; Jean Boudet’s French forces suffered losses of 480, and Dessalines’s forces suffered losses of 200-300. Another attempt was made on 22 March which led to 300 French deaths. On 24 March, Dessalines’s forces abandoned the fort in the night due to heavy losses, and the French gained control of it. Despite gaining control of the fort, the French had suffered major losses, including the death of General Charles Dugua. Alexandre Pétion, a mixed-race French general, played an important role in the capture of the fort when he managed to deploy his cannon on a hill overlooking the Haitian position.

12 Mas, twoup franse yo te eseye tounen jwenn kontwòl fò a, men yo echwe; Fòs franse Jean Boudet te pèdi 480 moun, epi fòs Dessalines yo pèdi 200-300 moun. Yon lòt tantativ te fèt le 22 mas ki te mennen a 300 lanmò solda franse. 24 Mas, fòs Desalin la te abandone fò a nan mitan lannwit akòz yo te pèdi anpil moun, e franse yo te pran kontwòl sou li. Malgre Franse te kontwole fò a, yo pèdi Jeneral Charles Dugua. Alexandre Pétion, yon jeneral franse milàt, te jwe yon wòl enpòtan nan kaptire fò a lè li te rive deplwaye kanon li sou yon mòn ki te bay nan direksyon pozisyon ayisyen yo. Source:Wikipedia
