Writing the Revolution

Lindsay A. H. Parker

Oxford University Press

Chapter 4 details the most dramatic year of the Revolution, during which Rosalie witnessed three major events: the June 20 mass demonstration, the "Second Revolution" of August 10, and the vigilante violence of the September Massacres. It is during this year that Rosalie became a firm Jacobin, just as the political parties within the Legislative Assembly were becoming more distinct and combative. It argues that circumstances helped her crystallize this ideology, which departed significantly from her Old Regime values. It also demonstrates the subtle ways in which her presence as a witness at these and other events affected her relationships within the family and her sense of femininity in political terms.
