Navy:
Southern Haitian State Navy, 1868
Name:
Marine de l’Etat Méridional du Sud Haïti
Career:

In April-May 1868 a rebellion against the Haitian Government broke out in the north and south of the country. The south seceded and created the Etat Méridional du Sud. Two sloops from the Haitian Navy (Liberté and Sylvain) mutinied in May and went over to the south to form the navy of the new state. Both were ambushed by the Haitian Navy on 20 September, 1868 at Petit-Goâve and sunk.

Southern Haitian State Navy, 1868
Navy:
North Haitian Republican Navy, 1869
Name:
Marine de la Republique du Nord Haïti
Career:

The rebellion in the North of Haiti created the Republique du Nord in April 1868, but no navy could be created until July 1869. The North purchased two steamers (Mont Organisé and République) in the United States and captured another (Artibonite) in Haiti. After arming the ships, the Northern Navy defeated the government fleet at Le Borgne on 14 September. Two more steamers (Salnave and Pétion) were captured at Le Cap in November. The North-South coalition eventually defeated the Government in December 1869 and the Northern ships formed the backbone of the new Haitian Navy.
