The French Revolution, Vol. 2 of 4
Excerpt from The French Revolution, Vol. 2 of 4: A Political History, 1789 1804July 7. The scene of the "Kiss of Lamourette" (see Vol. I.).The King confirms the suspension of Petion and Manuel.Although the King has vetoed the decree which would establish an armed camp in front of Paris, the communes of France are enrolling volunteers and despatching them to Paris. The War Department orders the municipalities to withhold these men, and to turn them back; but in spite of this a certain number are despatched; ostensibly to celebrate the Federation Festival on the 14th, but really to be sent to Soissons or the frontiers. These Federals are in many cases armed and equipped by the local Jacobin Societies.The King promises to be present at the Champ de Mars on the 14th. Meanwhile Brunswick is at Coblentz with a large army of Prussians and emigres, preparing to march.11. The Assembly decrees that France shall be declared to be in danger, as an appeal to the whole nation, invasion being threatened on every side.13. Petion is re-installed as Mayor.14. The Champ de Mars is prepared for the Federation Festival. There are tents for Louis and the Assembly (it rained at the previous Festival), and eighty-three Trees of Liberty, one for each department. There are thousands of spectators, but few Federals; the ceremony is a tame affair. The cry of the day, although Louis takes the new oath, is everywhere Vive Petion!Many of the Federals bear petitions demanding the establishment of a National Executive and the suspension of the King.Since the 5th a battalion of five hundred Marseillais has been marching towards Paris, singing the famous Hymn La Marseillaise.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
