In todays world we are taught that the French Revolution that was some courageous uprising peasants against their aristocratic oppressors. Anyone who does not conform with this view of this historical event is blacklisted as some backwards elitist. However the French Revolution was no romantic uprising as some would have you believe. It was in fact one of the most barbaric events in human history.
In 1793 there was a Royalist uprising in Vendee against the Jacobin tyrants. These men were not aristocrats but farmers who were still loyal to God,King and country. For other a year they fought on bravely. In the end however they were outnumbered and outgunned. The Revolutionaries had no intention on showing mercy to the citizens of Vendee. Revolutionary soldiers engaged in many sadistic games with innocent civilians. One of there favorite past times was to slice open pregnant women in order to chop their unborn children into pieces and then let the mothers bleed to death. Another popular practice was to throw children out of windows into a group of soldiers with bayonets. These people were filled with so much bloodlust that Commander Grignon gave the order that everyone they met was to be immediately killed, even if they were supporters of the Revolution.
