"French Victory at the Battle of Jemmappes"

This engraving first appeared in the newspaper Révolutions de Paris and shows the French General Charles–François Dumouriez entering the city of Mons after having led French forces to their first truly decisive victory of the war on 6 November 1792. According to the caption, this victory demonstrated to all of Europe that French forces, although having lost their traditional officer class through emigration, were nevertheless victorious because of their commitment to fighting for liberty.
