Charles Jeanne (and the other real life revolutionaries)

Upon realizing with a look of sheer shock there is no thread dedicated to this wonderfully melodramatic historical figure who used too much italics and spoke in a very distinct style I decided to take it upon myself to make such a thread ;)


Anyway, now to sound like a serious person who studies revolutions and stop impersonating Charles Jeanne.

There is a really good translation of his letter on Chanvrerie that I think somebody on here may have translated?

I read it in French as well A Cinq Heures Nous Serons Tous Morts

I wish there would be more to learn about actual chef de barricades. So many occasions, yet they are all unknowns or forgotten. Also, historic relics. I mean how cool would it be to see actual flags, weapons and pieces of barricades, at least in the Paris city museum.

I know right? as I was walking past the Saint-Merri barricade sight I saw children playing and blowing bubbles and all I could think of was the Brick speech.

A Cinq Heures is a great source, I read "Barricades" and it was good.
