montagnarde1793: (Maxime enfant)
[personal profile] montagnarde1793

My paper is not quite done, but before it's too late, let me just take a moment to say:

JOYEUX ANNIVERSAIRE, MAXIME !

Unhappily, I've also learned that this day, apart from being the day of Robespierre's birth, is also the day of Emmanuel Lanne's execution (of which this is the 216th anniversary). Don't know who Emmanuel Lanne is? Never fear, you will soon! (Well, as soon as I finish this paper...) Here's a hint to tide you over: he signed the birth certificate of Philippe Le Bas fils.

Relatedly, and appropriately, though I don't agree with all his editorial decisions (Turgot? Christopher Columbus? Really?), Sylvain Maréchal replaced today's patron saint with Harmodius in his Almanach des républicains.

Also, for those of you who are not on my f-list and therefore don't know this already, an announcement: I am now on dreamwidth. You can find me there as[personal profile] montagnarde1793.
