S: The Jacobins in the French Revolution
BC: THE END
FC: THE JACOBINS CLUB | written by Ella Gandeza illustrated by Mia Evangelista
1: This was the era of the French Revolution. The people wanted a new constitution, but they could not do this without a solution. They hated the monarchy and wanted a change. It was something that they could rearrange. The year is set to 1789. Let's get ready for story time!
2: They were a group of political extremists, indeed they were, angry at Marie Antoinette for buying fur. There were 900 Jacobin clubs, big and small, some men fat, and some men tall.
3: Led by brilliant men named Jean-Paul Marat and Robespierre, they used their words and tactics within this affair. They killed and they killed those who favored the king. The swords were the things that they would swing.
4: They were supporters of Louis XVI and his wife becoming dead-- put into the guillotine it was off with their head! January 20, 1793; the crowd became happy and went YIPPIE! | ----------- | -----------
5: Robespierre the "Incorruptible" becomes dictator of France. He looked for ways for France to advance, for he wanted the people of France to give his enlightenment idea a chance.
6: Thus, began the Reign of Terror. He wanted to rule without error. He killed those who stood in his way for he wanted everyone to obey. Stopping all religious activity going on, so much blood was being drawn.
7: Weary of bloodshed they arrested Ol'Max. He met his death sentence for his horrible acts. Killed by the guillotine on July 28, 1794, many of the citizens cheered and could not ask for anything more.
8: The Reign of Terror ends. The crowds shout"Hurray!" as they paraded around town on this special day. Of course they took his head after shooting him in the jaw. They stuck it on a pike and went HURRAH!
9: No more executions were made under the razor, for Napoleon came along and ruled with his red blazer. He was a very fierce leader, a king indeed, you may even say that every one followed his lead. But that is another story. A king leading France to glory. This is not the end but that is the story.
