The French Revolution
By Dr. Peter Hammond
A Time of Turmoil
The French Revolution was one of the most influential events
of modern history.
The ten year period from 1789 to 1799 when France went
from a Monarchy to a Republic,
to a Reign of Terror, to Dictatorship was
one of the most tumultuous times in European history.
Much myth and romantic legend has been written
on what some politicians would like the French Revolution
to have been,
Myth And Reality
but the reality was that the French
Revolution was a monstrous horror.
In the name of
“liberty, equality,
fraternity or
death!” over
40,000 people lost
their heads to the
guillotine,
300,000 people were publically
executed by firing squads,
drownings and other methods
of mass murder
and ultimately many millions died in the
25 years of war and upheavals that resulted.
The French Revolution has been the inspiration and model for
all socialist and communist revolutions in modern history.
The Prototype Revolution
Lord Acton in his Lectures on the French Revolution observed:
“The appalling thing in the French Revolution is not the
tumult, but the design.
Deliberate Design
Through all the fire and smoke we perceive the
evidence of calculating organisation.
The managers remain studiously concealed and masked; but
there is no doubt about their presence from the first.”
The tools of the French Revolution were: dis-information,
propaganda, the subversion of language, malice, envy,
hatred, jealousy,
Tools of Revolution
mass murder and foreign military adventurism as a diversion
to distract the masses from the failure of government.
These tools have been implemented by more modern
revolutionaries: Vladimir Lenin, Trotsky, Joseph Stalin,
Mao Tse Tung, Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, Patrice Lumumba,
Nicolai Ceausescu, Pol Pot, Ho Chi Minh and Robert Mugabe.
The power mad and
disenchanted have
continued to sing the
praises of the French
Revolution and to attempt
to replicate its ideals in
revolutions as far afield as
Russia, China, Cuba, North
Korea, Vietnam, Laos,
Cambodia, Ethiopia,
Revolutionary Ideas
Mozambique, Angola, the Congo and Zimbabwe. Demonic
forces and the Enlightenment ideas of humanist philosophers
such as Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Voltaire prepared the
ground for revolution.
Historian Otto Scott observed: “French intellectuals, middle
and upper classes had grown ashamed of their country,
history and institutions.
Such a phenomenon had never before arisen in any nation or
race throughout the long history of mankind. …a great
loosening began; the country slowly came apart…
for the first time since the decadent days of Rome,
pornography emerged from its caves and circulated openly in
a civilised nation.
The Catholic
Church in France
was intellectually
gutted; the priests
lost their faith
along with the
congregations.
Strange cults appeared; sex rituals, black magic,
satanism. Perversion became not only
acceptable, but fashionable.
Homosexuals held public balls to which heterosexuals were
invited and the police guarded their carriages…
the air grew thick with plans to restructure and reconstruct
all traditional French society and institutions.” (Robespierre –
Inside the French Revolution, the Reformer library, New York,
1974.)
“The heirs of the Enlightenment of the late 18th century…
launched the first Revolution in all history against the ideas of
Christianity, and Christianity’s God.
The Role Of The News Media
…the press… was spearhead, font, and fuel for the
Revolution.… the journals were mixtures of politics and smut.
They admired agitators extravagantly and
never discussed the Church without
mention of scandal, nor the government
without criticism.
They relied heavily on tales of sin in high places and
high handed outrages of the court; no name, however
highly placed and illustrious, escaped.
…through its journals and pamphlets …it could distort, colour,
plead, argue, lie, report, and mis-report the information
upon which the balance of the realm depended.”
(Otto Scott, Robespierre)
The French involvement in the American War of
Independence against Great Britain created
an enormous debt for France.
The Debt Crisis
This debt added to the financial crises which had started with
France’s involvement in the earlier ruinous Seven Years War
against Great Britain and Prussia.
The colossal debt added to the financial crises which
propelled the French state into bankruptcy.
King Louis XVI began his reign wisely. He dismissed the large
number of corrupt and incompetent ministers inherited from
the court of his father, Louis XV and he appointed an excellent
economist, Anne Robert Jacques Turgot as Controller General.
Sidelined From Recovery
Turgot proposed a drastic solution to France’s crises: the
cancelation of tax privileges for the nobles, the abolition of
industrial monopolies,
removal of restrictions on free enterprise, and other
bold, practical solutions. However, the nobles
pressured Louis XVI to dismiss Turgot.
The young banker Jacques Necker was then given the task of
managing the unmanageable bankrupt economy.
Stop Gap Measures to Stave off
Economic Collapse
He bravely tried some short-term measures to stave off the
inevitable economic collapse.
But when he
attempted to
move towards
adopting Turgot’s
free market
strategies, the
privileged nobles
and wealthy
middle-class
forced the king
to dismiss him too.
This was in 1781. Louis entrusted one
hapless man after another with the
financial crises, but all to no avail.
France’s international credit rating was plummeting and the
country was no longer able to secure loans.
By mid 1788, the government had become paralysed and no
longer able to avoid admitting bankruptcy.
Bankruptcy
The king was forced to re-instate Necker and call for a
meeting of the Estates-General to be convened in May 1789.
The Estates-General consisted of three houses, the first Estate
was the Clergy, the second Estate was the Nobles and the
third Estate were merchants and the common people.
The Estates General
Although the third house had twice as many people as the
other houses, each house was understood historically to have
only one vote.
Louis’ government failed to specify how the three houses of
the Estates-General were to function, nor did he provide
them with any Agenda or Constitution.
The commoners in the third house boldly organised
themselves as a self-contained National Assembly.
The National Assembly
The nobles were outraged and convinced Louis XVI to send
troops to blockade the hall where the Assembly
planned to meet.
The third Estate then met on a nearby tennis court and vowed
to continue in session until they could complete
a new Constitution for the nation.
This was outright rebellion against the authority of the king.
Yet on 27 June 1789 Louis ordered the other two estates to
join the commoners in a new combined Assembly.
The National Assembly spent most of its time debating the
latest philosophical and political theories.
The Liberals
The Marquis de
Lafayette, who had
achieved fame
through his
involvement in the
American War of
Independence,
espoused the cause
of freedom and
rallied the
liberal wing
of nobles
around him.
The Count of
Mirabeau
dominated the
Assembly
through his
eloquent
campaign for a
constitutional
monarchy.
The most fanatical extremists gravitated to Maximillien
Robespierre who was a strong devotee of the writings of
radical philosophers Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Voltaire.
The Fanatics
Rousseau
wrote that:
“It is necessary
to have a
cohesive force
to organise
and coordinate
the movements
of (societies),
members.”
Rousseau advocated constant agitation for “equality” in order
to maintain an atmosphere of fear where individual
differences will not be tolerated.” Do away with the family !”
Inspired by the defiance of the Assembly and stirred
up by revolutionary pamphlets and speeches, mobs
began to roam the streets of Paris attacking and
murdering royal officials.
France’s financial house of cards collapsed. Capital fled the
country and economic depression resulted.
Coordinated Chaos
A series of events combined to create food shortages and
hunger.
Agitators panned out across the
countryside to destroy the grain stores
and terrorise the inhabitants.
Hired mobs staged “spontaneous” riots in Paris.
The powers of government then collapsed.
Everything fell apart with astonishing co-ordination.
In reaction, some of the nobles persuaded the king
to seek to reassert royal authority.
Reaction
Soldiers were ordered into the streets of Paris
as a show of strength.
The appearance of the soldiers inspired mobs to seize
whatever weapons they could find and to storm the old
fortress of the Bastille.
The French Revolution is officially dated from this point:
14 July 1789.
Revolution
The Bastille had become a symbol of hated tyranny and much
legend has grown out of this event.
As it so happens, there were no political prisoners at the
Bastille at that time,
and despite the fact that the Lieutenant Governor of the
Bastille, M. de Launay, was guaranteed safe conduct and
surrendered the fortress under a white flag of truce,
the mob
massacred his
soldiers, and the
governor, cutting
off their heads and
carrying them on
spikes throughout
the streets.
As body parts of the defenders of the Bastille were paraded
through the streets, a mere seven prisoners were found
in the Bastille.
When the news
reached the palace
of Versailles, King
Louis was
astonished:
“This is
revolt!”
He said.
The Duc de la Rochefoucauld-Liancourt responded:
“No, Sire, it is a Revolution!”
The next day King Louis arrived, simply dressed
and with no bodyguards or attendants,
and spoke at the National Assembly.
Appeasement
He had ordered the troops to leave Paris,
the people would have no reason to fear their king.
Louis assured them that he had confidence in the Assembly.
The deputies rose to their feet cheering with great fervor.
88 of the deputies gathered at the Paris City Hall
and took turns speaking to the enormous crowd
from the balcony.
The famous
32-year-old
Lafayette
was elected
General of the
National Guard.
While many seemed optimistic for the future,
Marie Antoinette was filled with foreboding
and burned her private papers.
Deterioration
Nobles started to flee the court and the country,
many settling across the border.
On the 17 July the king travelled to Paris to identify with the
revolutionary mob.
In October a mob marched to Versailles demanding
that the king transfer his residence to Paris.
On 6 October the royal family were escorted by the rioters
to Paris where they could be under the control of the
revolutionaries.
Otto Scott observed that: “Paris, like the nation,
was divided into the politically active and the passive,
Manipulation of the Masses
between the many confused, disorganised and abstracted
and the highly concentrated organised and intent few.”
(Robespierre).
Two clubs came to dominate the Assembly at this time:
The Cordeliers were led by Georges Jacques Danton
and Jean Paul Marat.
Radicalisation
The most radical of all, the
Jacobins, were skillfully
manipulated by Robespierre.
It was in the French Revolution that the terms “left wing”
and “right wing” were first coined.
The Origin of The Left Wing
Those on the left were the Radicals,
who proudly adopted the designation as a symbol
of their Revolutionary defiance of Christian tradition
which always represented those on the right hand of God as
saved, and those on the left as damned. (James Billington,
Fire in the Minds of Men: Origin of the Revolutionary Faith.)
On 4 August 1789 the Nobles and
Clergy renounced their privileges in
the name of revolutionary equality.
On 2 November the Assembly voted to issue new paper
money, called Assignats. This sparked off rampant inflation.
On 2 November the Assembly voted to
confiscate church property.
The Hijacking of the Church
In July 1790 the
Assembly nationalised
the Roman Catholic
Church by enacting the
Civil Constitution of the
Clergy.
The Assembly undertook to pay the salaries of the priests
from the National Treasury and to create a French church
under the control of the government.
Pope Pius VI excommunicated all clergymen who took
the new oath demanded by the Assembly.
Most of the clergy refused to take the oath and were
evicted from their pulpits and parishes.
France was divided into 83 Departments (counties).
The National Assembly produced the
Declaration of the Rights of Man and of Citizens.
Declaration of the Rights of Man
Although this was patterned after the English Bill of Rights of
1689 and the American Bill of Rights which had been
appended to the United States Constitution,
the French Declaration embodied mostly
humanistic ideas of the Enlightenment.
While attempting to adopt many of the forms of the Biblically
orientated Magna Carta and the English Bill of Rights,
the French Declaration of the Rights of Man
failed to recognise the Creator and ignored
the Biblical foundations for true freedom.
A new Constitution was completed in 1791,
with a unicameral legislature elected by “active citizens”.
Before Mirabeau died, in April 1791, he predicted that
all their well deliberated efforts at Reform would collapse
and be washed away in a bloodbath.
Louis XVI attempted to flee with his family from France
on the night of 20 June 1791.
Abolishing the Monarchy
When radicals discovered them, they blocked their path and
escorted the royal family back to Paris.
The French Revolution
Danton and
Robespierre
seized upon
this event as
an
opportunity
to proclaim
that France
was a
Republic.
As the new Legislative Assembly met, 1 October 1791, the
Girondists proposed replacing the just-adopted Constitution
and creating a Republic.
Deeply concerned for the fate of the royal family, Austria,
ruled by Leopold II, the brother of Mary Antoinette,
prepared to invade France.
War
The Assembly declared war on Austria in
1792. The French were soon defeated by
the Austrians and the Prussians.
The mob stormed the king’s residence
and massacred the royal Swiss guards.
Massacres
The French Revolution
The French Revolution
The
Assembly
voted to
depose the
king and
write a new
constitution.
On 10 August 1792 the municipal government was
overthrown and Danton became
the self-appointed national dictator.
The entire male population was drafted for military service
and weapons production entered high gear.
In September 1792 terrorist mobs
swarmed through the prisons and
massacred thousands of prisoners,
including many nobles who had been
arrested for no other reason than that they
were nobility.
The French Revolution
The French Revolution
A new National Convention was called on 21 September 1792
to write a new constitution.
Killing the King
In December 1792, the Convention summoned the deposed
King, Louis Capet as he was now called.
On 21 January 1793 King
Louis XVI was beheaded on
the guillotine.
All of Europe was horrified and a coalition was formed
against France.
Coalition Against Revolution
Austria, England, Holland, Prussia, Spain and Piedmont
prepared to restore order to France.
The Jacobins mobilised the mob to
invade the Convention and arrest the
31 leading Girondists.
The Reign of Terror
This launched the Reign of Terror, which officially began
2 June 1793. Robespierre established
the Committee of Public Safety.
A policy of mass public terror was
unleashed with Revolutionary Tribunals,
in which all “enemies of the Revolution”
were summarily tried.
Mere accusations
were tantamount
to verdicts of guilt.
The trials were
abrupt with no
real opportunity
granted to the
accused to
prepare or
present any
defence.
The accused were quickly convicted
and carted off to the guillotine.
The Queen, 38 year old Mary Antoinette, was dragged
through the mockery of a trial on 16 October 1793 and
guillotined the very next day.
Killing of The Queen
Her son, later
recognized as Louis XVII
died as a result of
inhumane treatment by
his revolutionary jailers.
Twenty one Girondist leaders, including Madam Roland,
were also beheaded shortly after the Queen.
Heads Roll
The Duke of Orleans who had joined
the Jacobins and taken the name of
citizen Egaliter, even voting for the
death of his cousin the King,
was also executed at this time.
Romantic occultism taught a big bang theory of social science.
If one could blow up, or burn down, enough buildings
and kill enough people, you could produce Utopia!
Big Bang Social Science
The Reign of Terror spread throughout France. When one city
sought to resist, it was destroyed.
Destruction
The revolutionaries set up a pillar outside Lyons inscribed:
“Lyons waged war with Liberty. Lyons is no more.”
Toulon was subjugated under the leadership of a young
artillery officer from Corsica, Napoleon Bonaparte.
The Committee of Public Safety launched a
vicious atheistic war against Christianity.
War Against God
They invented a new religion which they called
the Cult of Reason.
At a festival at the Notre Dame Cathedral in
Paris an actress was enthroned as the “goddess
of the French people.” France was renamed
“The Republic of Virtue”.
Ancient Rome was lifted up as its model. The
press and theatres were turned into
instruments for state propaganda.
Fashions
changed to
immoral loose
Roman robes.
Over 2,000
churches were
renamed
Temples of
Reason and
hijacked for
the promotion
of this cult.
Historian Arnold Toynbee wrote: “In the Revolution a sinister
ancient religion suddenly re-erupted with elemental violence…
the fanatical worship of collective human power.
A Secular Religion
The Terror was only the first of the mass-
crimes that have been committed… in this
evil religions name.”
(John Willson, The gods of Revolution.)
The revolutionaries
began to turn on one
another. Danton was
executed 5 April 1794.
Meltdown
On 7 May, Robespierre sought to impose a
new religion on France, declaring a new
calendar to replace the Christian calendar.
21 September 1792, the day the Monarchy
had ended, was declared the First day of
year one of their revolutionary calendar.
Robespierre appointed himself as high priest of the
Supreme Being in this new cult.
On 27 July 1794, Robespierre and 20 other of his henchmen
were seized and executed by the survivors of the Convention.
Reaping What They Had Sown
More than 40,000 victims had been murdered
on the guillotine under the Reign of Terror.
300,000 others were murdered by firing squads or drowning.
Over two-thirds of those victims had been
peasants, artisans and workers.
As Madam Roland was being ushered up to the platform
to be guillotined she faced the statue of the goddess Liberty
and cried out:
“O Liberty, Liberty! What crimes are committed in thy name!”
The end of the Reign of Terror was not the end
of the French Revolution.
Unleashing Forces of Destruction
It would be followed by the Directory and by the Dictatorship
eventually culminating in Napoleon’s Empire which embroiled
all of Europe in ruinous war.
Even after the death of Robespierre, the Revolution
continued to talk about liberty and equality,
to fight against the Christian Faith, and to inspire more
communes, voices of virtue, Vladimir Lenins, Joseph Stalins,
Fidel Castros and Mao Tse Tungs.
The French Revolution was the prototype,
which was followed by the Russian Revolution,
the Chinese Revolution, the Cuban Revolution,
Revolutionary Tyranny
the Cambodian Revolution, the Vietnamese Revolution,
the Ethiopian Revolution,
the Mozambican Revolution, the Angolan Revolution,
the Zimbabwe Revolution and many others.
In every case they proved that yesterday’s revolutionaries
become tomorrow’s tyrants and dictators.
“While they promise them liberty,
they themselves are slaves of corruption.” 2 Peter 2:19

The French Revolution

  • 1. By Dr. Peter Hammond
  • 3. By Dr. Peter Hammond
  • 4. A Time of Turmoil The French Revolution was one of the most influential events of modern history.
  • 5. The ten year period from 1789 to 1799 when France went from a Monarchy to a Republic,
  • 6. to a Reign of Terror, to Dictatorship was one of the most tumultuous times in European history.
  • 7. Much myth and romantic legend has been written on what some politicians would like the French Revolution to have been, Myth And Reality
  • 8. but the reality was that the French Revolution was a monstrous horror.
  • 9. In the name of “liberty, equality, fraternity or death!” over 40,000 people lost their heads to the guillotine,
  • 10. 300,000 people were publically executed by firing squads,
  • 11. drownings and other methods of mass murder
  • 12. and ultimately many millions died in the 25 years of war and upheavals that resulted.
  • 13. The French Revolution has been the inspiration and model for all socialist and communist revolutions in modern history. The Prototype Revolution
  • 14. Lord Acton in his Lectures on the French Revolution observed: “The appalling thing in the French Revolution is not the tumult, but the design. Deliberate Design
  • 15. Through all the fire and smoke we perceive the evidence of calculating organisation.
  • 16. The managers remain studiously concealed and masked; but there is no doubt about their presence from the first.”
  • 17. The tools of the French Revolution were: dis-information, propaganda, the subversion of language, malice, envy, hatred, jealousy, Tools of Revolution
  • 18. mass murder and foreign military adventurism as a diversion to distract the masses from the failure of government.
  • 19. These tools have been implemented by more modern revolutionaries: Vladimir Lenin, Trotsky, Joseph Stalin,
  • 20. Mao Tse Tung, Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, Patrice Lumumba, Nicolai Ceausescu, Pol Pot, Ho Chi Minh and Robert Mugabe.
  • 21. The power mad and disenchanted have continued to sing the praises of the French Revolution and to attempt to replicate its ideals in revolutions as far afield as Russia, China, Cuba, North Korea, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Revolutionary Ideas
  • 22. Mozambique, Angola, the Congo and Zimbabwe. Demonic forces and the Enlightenment ideas of humanist philosophers such as Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Voltaire prepared the ground for revolution.
  • 23. Historian Otto Scott observed: “French intellectuals, middle and upper classes had grown ashamed of their country, history and institutions.
  • 24. Such a phenomenon had never before arisen in any nation or race throughout the long history of mankind. …a great loosening began; the country slowly came apart…
  • 25. for the first time since the decadent days of Rome, pornography emerged from its caves and circulated openly in a civilised nation.
  • 26. The Catholic Church in France was intellectually gutted; the priests lost their faith along with the congregations.
  • 27. Strange cults appeared; sex rituals, black magic, satanism. Perversion became not only acceptable, but fashionable.
  • 28. Homosexuals held public balls to which heterosexuals were invited and the police guarded their carriages…
  • 29. the air grew thick with plans to restructure and reconstruct all traditional French society and institutions.” (Robespierre – Inside the French Revolution, the Reformer library, New York, 1974.)
  • 30. “The heirs of the Enlightenment of the late 18th century… launched the first Revolution in all history against the ideas of Christianity, and Christianity’s God. The Role Of The News Media
  • 31. …the press… was spearhead, font, and fuel for the Revolution.… the journals were mixtures of politics and smut.
  • 32. They admired agitators extravagantly and never discussed the Church without mention of scandal, nor the government without criticism.
  • 33. They relied heavily on tales of sin in high places and high handed outrages of the court; no name, however highly placed and illustrious, escaped.
  • 34. …through its journals and pamphlets …it could distort, colour, plead, argue, lie, report, and mis-report the information upon which the balance of the realm depended.” (Otto Scott, Robespierre)
  • 35. The French involvement in the American War of Independence against Great Britain created an enormous debt for France. The Debt Crisis
  • 36. This debt added to the financial crises which had started with France’s involvement in the earlier ruinous Seven Years War against Great Britain and Prussia.
  • 37. The colossal debt added to the financial crises which propelled the French state into bankruptcy.
  • 38. King Louis XVI began his reign wisely. He dismissed the large number of corrupt and incompetent ministers inherited from the court of his father, Louis XV and he appointed an excellent economist, Anne Robert Jacques Turgot as Controller General. Sidelined From Recovery
  • 39. Turgot proposed a drastic solution to France’s crises: the cancelation of tax privileges for the nobles, the abolition of industrial monopolies,
  • 40. removal of restrictions on free enterprise, and other bold, practical solutions. However, the nobles pressured Louis XVI to dismiss Turgot.
  • 41. The young banker Jacques Necker was then given the task of managing the unmanageable bankrupt economy. Stop Gap Measures to Stave off Economic Collapse
  • 42. He bravely tried some short-term measures to stave off the inevitable economic collapse.
  • 43. But when he attempted to move towards adopting Turgot’s free market strategies, the privileged nobles and wealthy middle-class forced the king to dismiss him too.
  • 44. This was in 1781. Louis entrusted one hapless man after another with the financial crises, but all to no avail.
  • 45. France’s international credit rating was plummeting and the country was no longer able to secure loans.
  • 46. By mid 1788, the government had become paralysed and no longer able to avoid admitting bankruptcy. Bankruptcy
  • 47. The king was forced to re-instate Necker and call for a meeting of the Estates-General to be convened in May 1789.
  • 48. The Estates-General consisted of three houses, the first Estate was the Clergy, the second Estate was the Nobles and the third Estate were merchants and the common people. The Estates General
  • 49. Although the third house had twice as many people as the other houses, each house was understood historically to have only one vote.
  • 50. Louis’ government failed to specify how the three houses of the Estates-General were to function, nor did he provide them with any Agenda or Constitution.
  • 51. The commoners in the third house boldly organised themselves as a self-contained National Assembly. The National Assembly
  • 52. The nobles were outraged and convinced Louis XVI to send troops to blockade the hall where the Assembly planned to meet.
  • 53. The third Estate then met on a nearby tennis court and vowed to continue in session until they could complete a new Constitution for the nation.
  • 54. This was outright rebellion against the authority of the king. Yet on 27 June 1789 Louis ordered the other two estates to join the commoners in a new combined Assembly.
  • 55. The National Assembly spent most of its time debating the latest philosophical and political theories. The Liberals
  • 56. The Marquis de Lafayette, who had achieved fame through his involvement in the American War of Independence, espoused the cause of freedom and rallied the liberal wing of nobles around him.
  • 57. The Count of Mirabeau dominated the Assembly through his eloquent campaign for a constitutional monarchy.
  • 58. The most fanatical extremists gravitated to Maximillien Robespierre who was a strong devotee of the writings of radical philosophers Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Voltaire. The Fanatics
  • 59. Rousseau wrote that: “It is necessary to have a cohesive force to organise and coordinate the movements of (societies), members.”
  • 60. Rousseau advocated constant agitation for “equality” in order to maintain an atmosphere of fear where individual differences will not be tolerated.” Do away with the family !”
  • 61. Inspired by the defiance of the Assembly and stirred up by revolutionary pamphlets and speeches, mobs began to roam the streets of Paris attacking and murdering royal officials.
  • 62. France’s financial house of cards collapsed. Capital fled the country and economic depression resulted. Coordinated Chaos
  • 63. A series of events combined to create food shortages and hunger.
  • 64. Agitators panned out across the countryside to destroy the grain stores and terrorise the inhabitants.
  • 65. Hired mobs staged “spontaneous” riots in Paris. The powers of government then collapsed. Everything fell apart with astonishing co-ordination.
  • 66. In reaction, some of the nobles persuaded the king to seek to reassert royal authority. Reaction
  • 67. Soldiers were ordered into the streets of Paris as a show of strength.
  • 68. The appearance of the soldiers inspired mobs to seize whatever weapons they could find and to storm the old fortress of the Bastille.
  • 69. The French Revolution is officially dated from this point: 14 July 1789. Revolution
  • 70. The Bastille had become a symbol of hated tyranny and much legend has grown out of this event.
  • 71. As it so happens, there were no political prisoners at the Bastille at that time,
  • 72. and despite the fact that the Lieutenant Governor of the Bastille, M. de Launay, was guaranteed safe conduct and surrendered the fortress under a white flag of truce,
  • 73. the mob massacred his soldiers, and the governor, cutting off their heads and carrying them on spikes throughout the streets.
  • 74. As body parts of the defenders of the Bastille were paraded through the streets, a mere seven prisoners were found in the Bastille.
  • 75. When the news reached the palace of Versailles, King Louis was astonished: “This is revolt!” He said.
  • 76. The Duc de la Rochefoucauld-Liancourt responded: “No, Sire, it is a Revolution!”
  • 77. The next day King Louis arrived, simply dressed and with no bodyguards or attendants, and spoke at the National Assembly. Appeasement
  • 78. He had ordered the troops to leave Paris, the people would have no reason to fear their king.
  • 79. Louis assured them that he had confidence in the Assembly. The deputies rose to their feet cheering with great fervor.
