-Verdun, between France , Germany and Belgium falls to pro-monarch forces September 1792. IN reaction to this, the Trbunal executes the detained prisoners to “preserve Paris”.
-September Massacre- release of anger toward the ancien regime lead by the Paris Commune. The participants,_____,are given money and praise.
-"La Marseillaise"- The French National anthem glorifies this massacre as protecting their country
Ye sons of France, awake to glory,
Hark, hark, what myriads bid you rise:
Your children, wives and grandsires aging,
See their tears and hear their cries,
See their tears and hear their cries!
Shall hateful tyrants mischief breeding
With hireling Hosts, a ruffian band
Affright and desolate the land,
While peace and liberty lie bleeding?

To arms, to arms, ye brave!
ThMarch on! march on!
All hearts resolved on victory or death.

O sacred love of Francy, undying,
ThThy defenders, death defying,
Fight with Freedom at their side.
Soon they sons shall be victorious
When the banner high is raised;
And they dying enemies, amazed,
Shall behold they triumph, great and glorious.
