Léogâne ( _ht. Leyogàn) is the name of both a coastal city and an arrondissement in Ouest Department, Haïti. The city of Léogâne is located at around coord|18|30|39|N|72|38|2|W|display=inline,title. The arrondissement of Léogâne contains three communes: Petit-Goâve, Grand-Goâve, and the city of Léogâne. The port town is located about 29 km (18 miles) West of the Haitian capital, Port-au-Prince. Léogâne is the birthplace of the Taíno queen Anacaona (the town was originally called the Amerindian name "Yaguana" and the city's name is a corruption of that) and of Marie-Claire Heureuse Félicité, the wife of the Haitian revolutionary Jean-Jacques Dessalines (1758).

Charlemagne Péralte

Charlemagne Péralte, the leader of the Haitian resistance to the U.S. occupation that had started in 1915, had been a military officer stationed in Léogâne. He resigned from the military, refusing to surrender to the U.S. troops without a fight. Afterwards he returned to his native town of Hinche and began leading the "Cacos" against the occupation forces.
