(p.92) 4 The Mobilization of Political Opinion
The Revolution in Provincial France

Alan Forrest

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the mobilization of political opinion about the French Revolution in French provinces. The municipal revolution and the elections to departments and districts presupposed an unprecedented level of political involvement, and the impact of the Revolution at the local level is evaluated. Every department started producing their own educated political cadres and the provincial towns soon mobilized their own battalions to the National Guard and contributed to local federation.

Keywords:   French Revolution, political opinion, French provinces, political cadres, National Guard, local federation
