In memory of all those revolutionaries both real and fictional who gave their lives so that the sparks of progress could at last be ignited (also it’s the 70th Anniversary of D-Day- let us not forget those who fought on the Normandy beaches to seal the gift of freedom for future generations)
On this day in 1832 The June Rebellion in Paris was put down by the National Guard.
The June Rebellion, or the Paris Uprising of 1832 was an unsuccessful, anti-monarchist insurrection of Parisian republicans from June 5 to June 6, 1832.
The rebellion originated in an attempt of the republicans to reverse the establishment in 1830 of the July Monarchy of Louis-Philippe, shortly after the death of the king’s powerful supporter, President of the Council, Casimir Pierre Périer, on May 16, 1832.
The death of Jean Maximilien Lamarque was a spark shortly before the revolutions rose to their barricades. The rebellion was the last outbreak of violence linked with the July Revolution.
