Arming turn of the (previous) century Haitian revolutionaries

searches: Haitian military history, Haiti cacaos (with variations)

For a roleplaying game, I need to figure out what some Haitian revolutionary soldier types could reasonably be armed with. They were from somewhere between 1908 and 1915, when there were something like 20 different revolutions going on. I don't necessarily need too much other detail, the game's modern-day (they're essentially undead bodyguards), but I need to know what equipment it's plausible to give them. They can have better-than-average equipment, but not anything that would have been totally out of reach of the average mercenary or peasant revolutionary (I gather they weren't well equipped)
