Taking of Weapons at the Invalides

Dublin Core

Title

Taking of Weapons at the Invalides

Description

From the City Hall, the crowd that had gathered on the morning of 14 July crossed the Seine River and sacked the royal veterans’ hospital known as the Invalides, where it hoped to capture arms. In Berthault’s engraving, the scene appears chaotic. The guards seem unsure how to react to the surging, leaderless, yet determined crowd.
